    Crawled through the cab into the trunk to unlock the trunk. only to end up (out of frustration) tearing out the lock. (not to mention crawling through a lot of mouse dung and nests.)

    How do you like the quality. I was thinking about getting a set I just really don’t want to have to drill into my roof.

    they are nice and heavy. Needs painted. Im gonna do some double sided tape on the hinges and stick them to my windows. Gotta figure out how to attach the bottom. maybe something under the chrome. A clip or something.

    Two weeks ago when I was in Tampa for a business trip I met up with another local maverick guy. He was interested in some parts. Saw this nice roller 70 sitting in his yard. Today my dad drove down for me and picked up the car! Ended up trading V8 swap parts, flawless instrument cluster and some odds and ends for the car! This is will be the next one I build. Pretty solid car AD6B49DE-67F0-4EBB-9C06-397F5B2B9AF4.jpeg 6B0F3728-50C2-4565-B113-9AAD3B4B4110.jpeg FB954E9B-3157-4248-8DEC-2CEB8718182E.jpeg 4AED62CE-3ED1-4A94-A35F-8DB0B49EE376.jpeg 161572F6-95E5-4FC3-AB08-A7789A0E8F80.jpeg 5A84B19C-31B9-410D-AF57-B8ABD1C45062.jpeg 7B77DBC4-A42B-4E36-80AB-96774463D753.jpeg

    Looks like you'll need those V8 swap parts back!

    Lol I have two or three sets stashed away for things like this. This car is going to be a 70 grabber setup with 302/t5.
