Default She's back for another go.

It's going to be a tough one to sell in this state.

get it running at least. it's going to look funny red and white with the orange and black interior to. I sure they have this much money into the car but with so much not completed. all the exterior panels are not even painted yet. it going to make it had to wash out. a man wanted one what is done is done right most likely. but if you can't put it together your self your in for a big shock.

It was running great when I sold it to them. Guessing still runs? I am sure they have more than 20k in it at this point. It is a rock solid car to begin with. Yes it does still need a lot of reassembly.

Its too bad that they changed the body color. That is going to make for a lot of added expense on the part of the next owner. It would almost be cheaper to re-paint the car as opposed to re-upholstering everything that is now orange.

about the only other way to take care of the over heating problem was to raise the hood to let the hot air out. I stood by at many fires where we had the hood up on hot days as well as at the station after a run. If we had an extended scene time, the hood was put up as well. I bet that someone could have fried hamburgers on the air cleaner at times.

The easiest thing to do would be change the red to orange and move on. I personally like red better but with the orange interior original is the only way to fly.

one would have to look over the interior pieces to make that decision. of which is the more practical way to go. if you have to redo some of them changing them or painting them may be a option. a bout 75 bucks will get you enough PPG vinyl paint to change them to any color you want.

True but every scratch and the orange will rear its head. I rather stay orange and use it without worrying every time I loaded an object into the rig.
