Default 1984 GSL-SE restoration

I'm restoring a 1984 GSL-SE as a surprise gift for my dad. Its been a slow process. I'm hoping i can have it finished sometime during summer. Started off by fixing the rust problem areas. The car has been re-undercoated and the inside coated with LizardSkin. Keeping the car factory sunrise red.

Your dad is going to be a happy man! Wish my sons would do something like that, I used to have a '85 sunrise red GSL-SE which was the first new car I bought back in the day.
