Also, Brad paid to have an 87 done (it's an alternative to sweat equity).

Yes I did my 84. It's not that bad. I was having skins made and installed on the seats and box so it was the perfect time. I guess the worst part was getting up all the old glue. I filled all the mounting holes in the floor and redrilled so all the screws would be "new" tight again. I did have to make one seam in the storage area. I did not tackle removing the carpet all the way up to the front. It was still like new.

The upolestery shop did mine for $50 when I had it in getting the seats redone. I have only one seam, it runs centered from the engine compartment, around the pylon and up under the observer seat. only about 18 in. is exposed. It looks good, but is in a high traffic area.
