PostSubject: My summer vacation   Sat Aug 23, 2014 7:51 pm

I was visiting my mother and family in NC at the beginning of the month. I saw many square bodys, and a couple bubbles. I even visited a couple junk yars looking for rust free stuff, and a headliner. I got some nice sunvisors, but ll the headliners were junk. I even got a mint rear lic plate door that looked like it came directly from Arlington it was so clean. It was actually on a 91.




Day at the local Junk yard. No rot anyplace.




Phyllis likes Pontiacs, so I had to have this shot. lol


The license plate said "JUNK"


My brothers  6 speed 2013 Camaro SS


US Army HHR



My co pilot Reggie. He kept putting his head on my shoulder during the whole trip down, and back


Our little friend we adopted while we were down there. We call him Willie, and he has been through hell.


With Reggie, and my Mothers Pit Bull Tater.


A Honda thingy LOL

Looks like you had a good vacation with your family. Love those southern junkyards.

Did the windshield wiper arms catch up with you yet?

See you in October.

No rust on any of them. If I had the time, tools, and money, I would have gotten some.

Why not just re-cover the headliner you have?

I went out to Colorado Springs last year, was pretty cool to see all the old junk they have out in the desert. I visited a truck wrecking yard and grabbed a couple things for my C10

I stayed at one of the hotels on the road to High Point, but went to the LKQ salvage yard in Greensboro. There were a few B and D bodies.

I was going to go there, but they said they destroyed headliners moving vehicles, so chances are they were going to be no good.

Billy, if you can get the board out of that car intact, I'd seriously try just covering it with that gray fake suede stuff. It actually looks real nice when done, I think you'll like the result.

Funny seeing those B-bodies with just oil and road grime on the frames.

^^^^^This.

Joanne fabrics. Like 20 bucks for the materials. Get some good 3M trim adhesive. Peel off old felt, brush the dust off, spray cardboard and back of fabric with gorilla snot. Merge. Trim. Reinstall. Easy peasy.

Done this numerous times in many different fabrics. I have a red headliner you can have for free if you want to pick it up and give it a shot.

Or you can pickup headliner fabric from an auto upholstery shop if you want the factory look. It comes with the thin foam padding attached.

I may have. It's cool seeing wrecking yards outside of the rust belt, you see stuff that was all crushed here 15 years ago.
