    Last night I got the passenger side floor finished up! :woohoo1: Then I got the seat mounts and frame painted for the passenger seat. Even managed to squeeze in a few minutes to work on the 61 Comet a little!!

    Yesterday I went out and got a quote on getting my cowl induction hood made. OUCH!!! :slap: Then started taking apart the driver side seat so I can narrow it up 2" to fit in the car.

    About six months ago, I bought a 1975 Basic two door Maverick. It had an extremely rust free body. Out of it's 38 years it set under a shed for over 30 years. Since then I have replaced all ignition parts, and brake parts, and did the body work for the accumulated nicks, and dents. Alas, It was finally taken to the paint shop today. It will be back next week, and will take another week for detailing. :bowdown:
