More COVID-19 Repairs.

When fixing and re-inserting the window motors, I thought I may as well improve the alignment of the window frame to improve the speed of the window's ascent / decent, then I decided to replace the near 50 year old nuts and bolts for the window frame to stainless, then I thought that I may as well replace the 25 year old speakers with something more decent, then I thought I'd check the condition of the door stop rubbers, and the passenger one crumbled into 3 pieces when I squeezed it, hmm... add the red LED globes to the door trailing lights, add sound deadener to the outside and inside door skin, etc. This has ended up being an entire door rebuild!

I had a tiny bit of Dynamat left over, so I thought I'd cut some little pieces and stick it onto the window motors to see if it would reduce the motor noise- surprise, surprise, it really did cut down the noise and worked very well!

And right on cue, the new re-webbed seat belts arrived on Wednesday, so I have a little bit of work to do in the coming weeks.

Now I just have to drop the new stereo in, play with the LED console lighting and dimmer and get this all back together before Christmas!

Wish me luck, cheers!
