Default Re: Winterizing and restoring my car

As for the hood... the one on my SC2 was all rusty. I had orginally planned on sanding and repainting it myself, figuring about $50 for the job.

Went to the junkyard for something else, found a perfect hood the right color.

Turns out the hood can be removed with 4 bolts and lifted/ carried by one person. I did have to return with the minivan to pick it up, though, and it was only $50 at the pick n pull

+1 on removing the carpet. The interior is surprisingly easy to remove. There are richpin videos showing most of the parts.

Walmart and other places sell a cupholder designed to wedge in between the seat (passenger side) and console. Here's a photo where someone attached it to their shifter or something
