Did a little work on the car this afternoon. Adjusted the hood catch mechanism so that the hood will be completely shut, cleaned a little bit of the interior out, started installing some of the interior panels (C-pillars installed), got one bolt installed into the front bumper, just have to remove a piece in the wheel well so that I can get the other bolt installed.

I just have to get a passenger side door. The freken Door strap is not working at all, and is not connected to the body of the car..

I got to do some cleaning on the A-pillars, and a little fixing of them before I can install them..

I removed the cluster and looked at the contacts, cleaned them the best I could, reinstalled the cluster and for now it is fixed and working. I pulled the bulbs out and looked at them, and when I was looking inside the hole where the bulb goes, and it is blue inside..

On my car, the strap (as I call it) bolts to the door pillar. Just have to get a pic to better describe it.

I got the torx bolt that goes in there, but the issue is the strap (as I call it - The metal bar that keeps the door from swinging open 2 far) is not wanting to come out of it's current position in the door so that I can bolt it back up to the door pillar. It is stuck in the door closed position..

Cean, this is what the part I am talking about (What I call a check strap). it is that solid bar that from from the door and has that hook piece on it. There really is nothing wrong with having extra parts laying around just in case something goes wrong ..



It just looks like all I have to do is remove the door panel, then remove the 2 torx bolts holding it to the door, and remove from the inside of the door. I know it looks dirty in there, because where I live, it is hard to even keep that area clean

Well of course I need to replace the door anyways because I never got one when I got all the parts to fix the car (Did not have the $$$ to get one). I could possibly undent the door (there is only 1 dent and an area I need to unbend), but it looks like it will take some time to do. There is still some tweaking that I have to do on the fender to get it 100% correct as you can see in the picture below, but it does look possible to fix the door without replacing it (IMO of course).



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In other news, I have done a little bit more work to the car this morning / afternoon but nothing major due to having to deal with tonights supper, having to rest so that I can take my sister to work tonight (Don't ask ), but here is a little bit of the progress that I have done.

STARTED OFF WITH THIS:



GOT THIS PANEL INSTALLED (It was already there, but the clips were broken - I fixed that )



FINALLY GETTING THE WIRING RE-RAN FOR THE LIGHTS:



Once I get the headliner redone, it is going in there, and the wiring is going back to where it was at and that was just sitting on top of the headliner (weird)..

Of course just a random photo I took this morning while I was trying to get my crappy 7.1 MP camera up and going:



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Still sorting through photos to get the ones for the rebuild in order (I got to many pictures on my SD card) and prep them for uploading.

I just wished the weather today was like this yesterday, and the ground was dry as it is now. It was still a little muddy when I went out yesterday to work on the car, and had to scrap off a lot of mud from my shoes before I came into the house.

That check strap is really two straps held together at the bracket that bolts to the door pillar, and then inside the door at the internal stop. You may be able to soak it in solvent to get it to loosen up.

I'll go pull one for ya.

As for the door - I SERIOUSLY don't think you'll get very far in trying to fix that door - You'd be money and labor ahead to just replace it.

That is what I was thinking about the door, i just have to call a couple of yard around here to see how much they would want for one.

I have yet to figure it out, but i still find this picture funny as all can get out..



It looks like the C-3500 is guarding the rear-end of the Trep, and it looks like it is saying, Don't worry I am watching your back door, so nobody will mess with you

I went to get a copy of my key made, and the only place that makes key copies in my town is Wal-Mart. Of course when I said it was for my Dodge Intrepid, the first thing that is asked is the key chipped. After she went to see what blank is needed, she looked for it, and came back stating that they were out of the blanks and will not have any for a few days.

I was like great, but since I would be at another Wal-Mart later in the day (Night time) I would go and get one there if they have the blanks. I have not went to see if they have any of the blanks or not yet because there is nobody in that department this time of the night. I will check first thing in the morning to see if they might happen to have one and can copy my key.

When Sears came into my town and took over a place that I use to buy parts from, they stopped making copies of keys.

Of course I know when I get the copy made, I may have some issues with it at first because the original key that I got with the car is worn down (As so I am told)
