    Awesome, thank you for the pictures, I also had some reservations about them but I’m definitely liking how that looks

    Omni. I only have one body shop supplier in the area with multiple locations and that's what they sell.

    Back when I did my '76, I resorted to a dash cap. It looked great and nobody can tell it's a cap until you touch it and see that it's rigid. No regrets.

    It’s been a long day.....sold 7 of my motorcycles, helped Blink47 work on his comet, my wife got in a fender bender with her 07 Mustang and I ordered a Unisteer rack & Hooker headers for my Comet.
    I’m spent and need a drink...or two.

    Changed to an Addco 7/8 anti-sway bar a few months back. The end links tilted back towards the rear due to the lower control arms being pulled forward for caster. Moved the bar mounts forward about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch to get the links vertical again. FYI, 7/8 bar is a big improvement over the previous pipe cleaner sized 5/8 factory bar.

    well the 2 hr. road trip turned into a 216 mile cruise to just inside the Ga. Ala. line west of Atlanta. met up with 25 other Mav/Comet fans and went to a BBQ place for lunch.
    Jeff's maverick was one of the 7 mavs. that were there. Earl came over from S.C. to join us. Terry and David were two more Guys I knew that came.

    A.L.T.W.H.B.A.
