    new fuel filter, and decided to drive her to work, new guys had never seen a maverick before, running like a champ considering she hadn't seen pavement in about 15 years prior to 5 months ago :yahoo:

    Well it was yesterday, but I piddled around with my horn and took the steering wheel apart. Should have started with my multimeter since it ended up being the horn itself, but I wouldn't have scrubbed the 40 years of sweat and dirt off the crash pads otherwise. :eek:

    Then, since I finally got a floor jack and stands, I moved the ground cable I had running between the regulator and battery to have it going from the regulator to the engine block like it is supposed to. (It's half of the original negative battery cable.)

    Then I found out I could sand the rust off my turn signal and shift levers and still have some chrome left!

    All that's left is the body work, disk brake swap, engine work, new interior, and a paint job! :cry::rofl2:
