    Been a busy day in the garage. Finally put in my new seats. Then spent hours polishing and waxing. Not bad for 20 year old paint job.

    Pro Car low back bucket seats with fairlane seat mounts. Would prefer high backs or the seats with the headrest but the price was right.

    Sounds like a very productive weekend. I spent mine working on getting the F-100 into some primer

    Sounds like a deal, too bad I'm going up to my shop this weekend to do some wiring on the 5.0l transplant and see if the radiator hoses I bought will fit. Haven't been up there since late January so way behind on getting that machine running.

    Been slowly digging my car back out. Back in June, got the opportunity to move full time up to my shop in Show Low. Gotta love that telework. I put the house up for sale middle of June and it sold in 2 days, with a nice bonus over my asking price. I had planned on a month or two to start moving my stuff (including my other project, F-100) up to Show Low. Turns out I had 10 days to get everything up since I had a 2 week trip planned to go visit family. To say the least, I put the car up on the lift, and backed the F-100 under it, then quickly packed everything else I own in and around them. Working to have a small apartment built out in the next two months, then I can get back to finishing up the Mav. Hope to make a run down to the valley for our meet this winter if we get past enough of this "stuff" to get together.

    Hope everyone down there is enjoying those 110's, been 90 max up here :whistle:. Now with the rains we had a couple days that didn't get out of the 70's. (y)

    Hey guys...Mark Kapron from Mesa left me a voice mail saying his computer is down and he is in need of some exhaust manifolds for a 71 Maverick with a 302. Anyone have any laying around that they want to sell off?
