    I will be removing the B&M shifter and installing a Ford factory floor shifter soon, so today I sanded the bezel and other parts on the factory floor shifter and painted them black. It already looks a million times better without the wood grain.
    I had a spare set of door lock knobs that I also sanded and painted red. The red may be a bit much, but I have the set I painted black last week so we'll see.

    Picked up my Grabber from The chassis shop from being Mini tubbed, When I got home my new Hoosier 29x12.50 rear tires had been delivered by UPS.:yippee: Good day for sure!

    Now I will prep and Rust Bullet the floor pans and trunk areas, Spatter paint the trunk,and start putting it all back together with new carpet and seat covers from Fred Carello. :dance::smash::bananaman
