Ok...It has finally begun. Re-carpet/upholstery. Along with a few other things. I guess these are the before pictures.

Well, all upholstery has been dropped off to get replaced. Afraid of that $$$. Currently working on some wood-grain replacements for dash. Pics soon...

You like that??? I haven't decided if I'm putting it back or using that hole for something else. I almost feel like it is signature...Like Infiniti's use of the analog clock.

You HAVE to keep the compass! Very cool! I always liked the MC decal inside the storage compartment too. My cousin has a 92 Maristar 210 with the same thing!

Keep the progress pics coming!

Just got the call today. $3,100 for all upholstery. More than I wanted, less than I was worried it'd be. I should have some updates this evening from the dash re-work. I'm replacing the plastic gauge pieces with wood grain. Hopefully it comes out good.

It is indeed a BB 454. It was the original engine from '91 (Indmar). I don't know for sure if it is an HO version. Is there anything that would stand out and differentiate the HO for the std stock BB?

Ya, google the part number of your intake manifold. If its the aluminum one then you apparently have the HO version with rectangle port heads. If it is the steel one you have the regular output with peanut port heads.

This info was passed on to me from someone on this forum and someone at indmar

It's definitely not aluminum intake.
