right now we're just making the car run and drive for a daily driver. So that project is going to have be my project later.

Added 11 hours later:

So the guy who we got parts from dropped them off today. He dropped off some trim pieces for the trunk area.

We finally got a USDM cluster


And we also got a harness bar. I'll most likely remove the stickers and maybe paint it.


The guy also left with a nice list of parts we need if he comes across it.

That's a good idea to go back to the mph cluster. And yeah those stickers look tacky.

Yeah, when it's turned right it looks like it's wrapped with christmas paper. We replaced to seized headlight motor with one we bought from the guy. The headlights will go up but not down, it most likely is because of a relay so you have to manually put it down. And it just looks SOO GOOD.

And what's funny is that the "harness bar" isn't actually a harness bar. It's a variation of a rear strut bar that goes on the rear pillers. So idk if he lied to my parents about it, because they got the stuff while I was in school. Or if the guy was a dumbass.

I'm pretty sure it's a rear strut connector. Most brands have front strut connectors with the vertical offset built into the bar itself rather than the bracket.

That said, I've not seen one with brackets that only mount with one bolt hole. Feel safe?

That's a B or C pillar strut bar. If you run a seat harness to it you'll probably die.
