      First of all, when I got the car, the drivers side upholstery was already falling off, and the passenger side was starting. so I knew this would happen. after a few months of driving with shop towels to keep the nasty off my shorts, I was ready to get this over with. I don't have a fancy camera so you will have to deal with my cell and my dark garage.
      SO, to start, OFF WITH THE DOOR PANELS




      The brown one is the Passenger side(freshly removed..er..peeled fabric), the driver side i had attempted to clean, there is some shop towel still adhered to it in this pic.



      Nasty!



      Went to the hardware store and to dinner, came back with this(its meant to strip steel, but it would serve its purpose well).



      One is done, but the other will have to wait til tomorrow.








      EXTRA!
      The mirror exterior on the passenger side of the car was busted by the prev. owner, so i ordered some new mirrors.



      Cool blue, since the busted one is a blue one and I kinda like the color I got a set in primer black to look good without paint.





      Going to be editing for the progress, until then,
