I spent the better part of the evening stripping the interior from the car. The dash and most of the wiring is out of the car. Today, I will take the drivers seat, rear seat, rear door panels and the carpet out so that I can pull the old ABS harness out of the car and the rear wiring harness so that I can check for any issues and clean it up for reuse or I may end up using the Jetta harness so that I can integrate a rear window swith other than the ones on the dash. This is so that the rear passengers can vent or close the rear windows if needed without having to reach up front.
When I removed the dash, I also removed the HVAC box so that I can change the firewall pads to the newer donor car pieces. There wre signs of infestation from the car sitting in a storage barn for nearly two years. Tearing the car down to a bare shell will let me clean everything out and will also make it easier for a color change for when it goes out for paint and body work. I am undesided as to what color the car will be. With it's current Classic Green Metalic, which can look real nice but I want to do something different, so I am looking at several colors (suggestions welcomed).
