    Not today but last Sunday, experimented with rubbing compound. I wanted to see how bad I need a paint job. Ran out of compound.

    I picked up some used 71-73 Mustang parts today, I’m thinking the seats may find their way into the Comet:huh:

    Installed a brandy new carb on the 250 and got it tweaked. Puppy runs really great now. Also, installed an AM-FM stereo to do away with the old AM radio. Had a genuine Ford one still squirreled away from the old Mav restos from years ago. Still have to mount a second speaker but it's all good.
