    Actually had a super productive afternoon! Got the passenger side seat all buttoned up - had to remove and inch from each side to make it fit. Then I got the passenger side floor put in place! About 85% done on that side, and then it will be time to tackle the driver side

    Spent most of the day setting the converter end play...........using machined
    ARP head washers as spacers................and making sure I have 3/8" to 1/2" play in the drive line yoke at the trans...........................had to take the springs out again to check the suspension motion........................and it was 93 degrees today...............................seemed like a non-productive day to spend so much time to get only two things on my list done...............now I only have
    5 more days to get everything done on my list before I go in for knee surgery:(

    Got my Spoiler by Randy installed! Yippie!!! Now all that is left is to finish converting from carb to injection. Still waiting on parts...and money. The never ending story.
