My restored '94

Postby cmg3100 » Fri Mar 13, 2015 3:20 pm

After a little over 2 years and waaay too much money later, I finally got my 1994 Beretta (my first car) back from getting a new engine, transmission, suspension and paint. Still got a few loose ends, but I'm very pleased with how it came out, easily the nicest it's looked in the 16 years I've had it. I've been a member on here since around 1999, but haven't been active for a while, I expect that'll change as I start finishing the car up.

PS- I forget who gave me the badge off here about 2 years ago for the rear bumper, but thanks! It looks great on the car, finally :D

Thanks. A few things on the interior is about all I have left to do. Driver's seat needs foam and new covering, the headliner is sagging, and redye rear headrests. Car has always been garaged, but they've still faded a little. All the other interior trim is basically as new aside from minor bubble on passenger side of the dash, but it's not too bad.

Maybe some weatherstripping on outside if I could somehow find some nice ones. The taillight center filler panel red trim peeled off, I replaced it with black, but I'd like to find some red vinyl to redo that.

Thanks. They're 16" aftermarket rims. I forget the brand, but whatever a broke HS student could afford from Pep boys in 1999... I've debated putting some GTU/Indy wheels on it, but I've grown so used to these over the years, and they've held up really well. Here's a better shot of them:

They have a nice euro look to them. Can't say I like them all that much(bit too picky when it comes to wheels), but I sure don't hate them. They do look good on your car!
Long shot: set of euro headlights and you have a great match to those wheels.

Please do not get rid of those wheels. They got to be rare as hell!

Well it's white, so I like it right off the bat, and the wheels are unique and suit the car pretty well.

Wish you had of removed the side mouldings though.

Nice ride!!

I would LOVE a set of the euro headlights. I've always thought the car had a very late 80's look to it (the white & red, with all the black trim), and I think the euro headlights would really emphasize that with the black grille.

They were pretty much unobtanium the last time I looked for them 10 years ago, and I assume they haven't gotten any easier to find since then.

And as to the door trim, I actually debated getting some of the old GT trim, the black with red, but they turned out to be a hard find too.
