Default My Daily. An uber slow build with poor documentation

So in January of 2021 I picked up this 1988 Blue Green Metallic 244 beauty of an old-man car. It's a DL, no sunroof, manual everything, cloth interior workhorse. And it is actually in fine shape. Couple of little dents, a scratch or two, but over all pretty mint.

First thing I did was paint the centers gold.

I can't stand those plastic hubcaps so they got trashed. Found some dog-dishes and trim rings, painted the rims Rustoleum "Metallic Champagne Bronze" since it was the closest match to the pinstripe I could find. This is just a wire wheel and spray job. Nothing fancy. I also got some new Falken tires put on.
