So im looking for any interior parts for my 1987 442, the Sheffield grey dash trim especially. but also how to get the steering wheel redone or the chrome on the door plastic. any advise or help is appreciated. I will be doing a total resto on this but would like to get a game plan on this.

People have had luck fixing the interior plastic chrome pieces with a vinyl chrome wrap. Can’t really tell the difference if done right.

Nice I did see that along with a chrome pen/marker. I could try that thanks ill look it up. Unfortunately im missing some dash trim that was switched out with wood trim from an 86. so im on the lookout for it. harder then hens teeth to find.

87 442 dash trim is made out of unobtanium. Good luck with finding any decent looking parts. I've got all the gray stuff NOS except for the passenger dash vent plate. Still on the hunt for that one. As soon as I die or not need one, then I'll probably run across a bunch of them. That's my luck.
