    I wouldn’t mind picking up a set of liners to run.

    So I poked my head under there a bit more closely to see how things looked. I had looked prior to cleaning, but didn’t really look once I could see everything better.

    Here are a few shots of the inside front fenderwells…

    Passenger aft…

    There were a couple areas around the grommets that must have had some tape that was coated over at the factory. I plan on retouching these and any other exposed areas.

    But, based on what these look like from underneath and up top, I don’t think I’m going to be pulling the fenders just yet. I feel like I’d be doing more harm than good (scraping into bare metal, bending/tweaking fenders during removal, etc.) given that it looks like this after 30 years. If it looks twice as bad after another 30, I’d be happy. The old stuff is still surprisingly flexible.

    I will consider myself warned, but on to other things…
