You have never seen anything till you work on a gravel road runner. Or beach buggy.

Default Got her home

Got her home Saturday and the clean up has begun. So far she's coming out nice. The family was almost in tears watching her leave. After being dormant for 3 years, with some fresh gas and battery she fired right up and drove onto the trailer.

Jim,

I could probably fix you up with both. I could also deliver them to Matt Menges' body shop in Wichita, if you would like. I get down to southern KS on a fairly regular basis. I believe that you are a friend of Matt's. Shoot me a PM, if interested.

That interier was the sharpest one i have seen. Loved it. You will need a superior light base for that one as it uses a hot shoe. Easy enough to make as that is all superior did on there's. I have pictures if you need them. Then they used a 1/4 20 bolt not the 3/8 with the hole drilled threw it. If you find a none demonstrable one i could do a superior mount for you. Then all you have to do is swap the tag.

Default After a good scrubbing

I went home last night and gave her the first serious scrubbing she has had in a long time and she came out rather well. All of the interior lights are now working and I only have blower motor and brake light issues to track down now. And, by the way the missing Superior emblem fo the rear quarter is in the glovebox.
