Very nice, did you do the sewing yourself? Or did you have an upholstery shop do it?

Good to know. I did a headliner about 10 years back and it came with rods and clip instead of the original plastic bows that GM used. It fit good but I'd much rather prefer the original setup. I'll see if I can find someone local to do it on my Cutlass this winter. Share some pics when you install your headliner. Love to see the results.

you have to wait at least 2-3 years for pictures of the headliner installation. Very Happy

I removed the rear sway bar today. the control arms were rusted through from that attachment point. I ordered the Speedway Motors control arms and also the upper ones.
I took them without the bushing because I already have the energy suspension kit.

Those control arms should work well. I buy a lot of stuff from Speedway since they have way better customer support than Summit or Jegs in my experience.

again a few parts cleaned and painted.
when I finish the removed parts, then I'll move on to the body and frame.
