Hello and welcome!
Very good condition, nice find. I like the seat upholstery.
I'm going to do something similar to it with my 94. But I think I will make them with 3 larger sections. Kinda like the mid 70's Grand Prix seats were. They'll be in black leather, which I already have. Actually, I have enough leather to do at least 4 complete interiors. I hope to get that started something this winter.
Take good care of that Skyhawk. They are pretty darn rare now and yours appears quite solid.

Thank you for the welcome and kind words. I plan on keeping her going as long as I can. I believe I'm going to have to a motor swap in the spring. Between the first 2 spark plug holes seems to be weeping coolant out of nowhere. Its not the head gasket as its up too high, it appears to be in the casting. Nothing a 3.1 swap wont fix
