Yeah I think so also. The 1985-1986 door panels just dont have any flash to them. The 1987-1988 had a little more comfort to them. As of weight the old on weigh in at 4.23 ponds. New ones weigh in at 4.65. So Its not any heaver. Also I want to find a center consol with cup holders... Like in the 1988 automatics... Anyone have one for sale? I'm also thinking of upgrading rims to a eagle rim with 155r13. If you notice the door is white on the inside. Thats because A tree at fail on it in Sherman grove park. We were looking at the big red woods 10 years ago and a limb fail on it. So I had to replace finder and door. Had maco paint it. In the paint job lasted about 6 years. That ok for a cheapo paint job....
