I should mention I’ll wash after sanding. Usually I add baking soda since I used naval jelly.

3rd row ashtray. Pitted but at least shiny now. Stuff I hadn’t noticed before now that other stuff is done!

Putting some carpet in third row footwell. I hadn’t noticed it had it (from the factory) up against the rear vertical panel/bulkhead. I probably noticed it when I ripped out the old carpet in 2017. But forgot until now. There were four screws on the panel. They had carpet fuzz on them. Telltale sign! I lined up the screw holes in the sheet metal and the carpet by sight, with a pick, it worked surprisingly well.

Plan to add/finish the footwell floor carpet soon. That part has to be cut to fit. I’ll probably put the floor carpet down with some glue when I get to that point.

Cleaned up the screws, they had some surface rust.

Cut the footwell carpet to fit. It’s a little rough. Decided against gluing. “Good enough” for now. Happy with the overall look. (And I’m tired of this project.)

Anybody have a good lead on new/replacement door window channel? I’d like a part number. I’ve called places like Metro Moulded, but they usually expect the customer to ID which trim (part number) fits.
