    Surprised this window is still in one piece and/or not on the highway. EECBD1DE-6905-4189-92CF-D7FDFEFF9EC1.jpeg
    The lower section of this shot is center top of the flow through box, the top is the open trunk lid, the chrome is the rear window trim... them little diagonal lines’ere are the vents in the dutchman’s panel. It’s about that f***ed up all the way across.

    May I suggest Seang's Auto & Boat Upholstery in South Hadley M.A. Buddy of my stepfathers knows the guy who owns the place, and we had a couple tops done by him and he did a great job.

    Jeeez, FINALLY. You guys seem to dig these out within a week of getting your cars:

    I’m gonna leave the back seat back one till I can get some more hands on it.

    Anyway, decent weather before the yard starts growing is car time. Took the seats out and was happy to find no further mouse housing. Probably going to roll them out for one more quote before making a decision but it looks like I’m going to get them done sooner than later.

    I know that the likelihood of this car going anywhere this summer is nill but I look forward to working on her.

    I hope y’all are well and have not caught the cordobavirus.

    Aside from the hantavirus and empty acorn shells, that’s really all it is. Admittedly, the acorn shells emit a sort of Caribbean wind chime vibe at highway speeds.. real relaxing.

    How bad was the original timing chain? How much slack/any teeth missing. Just changed mine out and it had a bunch of slack but nylon teeth looked good.
