    Pulled out the back seat to start installing the rear speakers on the 74 and the build sheet was hiding back there!!! :clap:(y)

    If I was only so lucky when I took my 71 Grabber apart ... :cry:

    Yup ... I found the CORNER of my build sheet under the drivers side seat on my 71 Grabber. The other 99% of it somebody had already removed and it was gone ...
