Default Dream parts

Well, again it is raining over the Houston area! Hope the 02 Inca Gold Dream Cruiser will still be in the junkyard after this weather abates.
I've decided to capture the entire interior and as much sheet metal as I can haul in my 03 Tangeine Pearl Dream Cruiser. It would be a shame for such a beautiful limited production car not to save as much of it as is practical. There are also three wheels which may be good too. Wish me luck.

The wheels, interior and Dream Cruiser badge is really all that is unique. And the wheels were later options on other models with different center caps. The car may have a "turbo style" front bumper cover. But some appear not have had this. The rest of the car is literally a 2002 PT Limited.

On the interior, there's:

* Special front and back seats with gold inlays (may be heated)
* Gold inlays in the front and back doors panels
* Inca Gold dash facings
* Cool numbered badge on the front window switch.

The rest is just taupe Limited interior with the cobra head auto gear selector. Of course, items from any 2002 Limited worth having might include:

* Engine vanity cover and mounts
* Top trim piece for the glove box
* Low tone horn to go with the high tone horn on 2003 and up PT's
* Rear sway bar
* Possibly a rear spoiler wing. But many don't have them.
* Lighted window switches in front and back
* Lighted front door look switches
* Better-made steel moon roof mechanism.
* Anti-theft switch under the hood.

There's a few other special items used in 2001 and some 2002 PT's. But some are only 2001 and some are only sometimes found on 2002 models.

My 02 Dream has a Turbo style 5 bar grille bumper cover. Thought it was a replacement fron crash damage.
If the rain ever stops I'll get over there and get as much as I can. I have the instrument and airbag covers already. I need the hood as mine has holes drilled in the back corners from the POs dummy spot lights. I am most grateful they did not drill holes in the windshield posts!
We've installed the alarm switches in all four of the Cruisers here to fill the holes in existing brackets. The wires are just tucked into the harness they would have been in.

Can't buy a car from any junk yards around here anymore.
Sadly, the Dream was on top of the crush pile when we got back this morning. There is a picture on my sons post here "and then there was this" today.
Made me sick, no parts, no hood especially, no wheels, no interior. Sqash!
I even called the office from the yard and talked to the yard manager. Rules, rules, rules. No go. Even money wouldn't bypass those rules.
