Hi All
After 10 years of owning my vert I finally sprung for a restoration. New cloth top, top motor and hydraulics, paintless dent removal, LED lighting, refurnished rims, fixed the door jam, new carpet, new seat foam, new speaker covers, new interior, and new Lloyd custom floor mats.
I finally brought it home today!

Thank you! It’s an engine and transmission away from having everything redone. But with the 102k miles on it she stills has a ton of life left so that’ll happen at a later date.

Carlisle Customs and Classics in Shippensburg PA did the entire job including replacing all the seat foam.

Thank you for the information on the foam.
I may contact them to see if I can order sets. Furniture manufacturing is big in my area, so we have foam shops here. My plan was to just buy foam locally and then cut it as needed. However, Carlisle likely has the correct patterns which would make things go smoother, if I can buy pre-cut foam. I'm going to be doing black leather seats on my 94.

What engine/trans combination are you going to install?

I’m planning on putting the 90 3.1 in it but keeping the 2.8 valve cover just to make it look stock original. It’s possible I may go bigger but at the moment my modified 02 Camaro SS gives me the modified power.

we have 2 other Z24s. Both are stock 88 Verts with exceptionally low miles. So the 89vert has become my customizable car.
