Yesterday was tear down:



Today this AM finished the tough first half:

Good Morning everyone. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

It rained all day yesterday.
Made the long drive back from Edmonton in our new to us VW Passat (2001)

I dropped Deb off at the Mal :eek: So I'm going to spend some time working on the 928 (Cleopatra), tuning.

Hey cookie,nice to see your working on some stuff. You can put this stuff in your profile page.

Well it's plenty hot here...110 in the shade, and it doesn't look like it is going to be cooling off anytime soon! Sometimes I just loath Kansas in the summer!

The linier time was about 3 hrs to take the seats out and the center console (I had done it before on the EXT Truck version of this before), 3 hrs to cut the carpet and fit it into place and an hour to two to put everything back into place and clean up all the other mess along the way I could.

I probably could do it faster, but to damn hot to work that hard :D

3rd Row




I have a good day of cleaning the seats and all the other internal pieces and parts. I will attack the motor and undercarriage probably next Friday.... Might be easier to pay for a detailer :)

Is the carpet glued in the 928 (it is in mine)... or is that just what someone else did?

Carpet is not a hard job, just a time taking one... I would like to re due the Porsche at some point... the lower doors are beginning to look like Shag... I do like the Champaign color with the dark blue though.. .I will stick with the color...
