    A very productive evening and I guess Pandora is out and about. No glitches for once , get to see a lot more of the old girl than I ever have . Want to take a good look in the daylight and take a bunch more photos. Thanks ( I hope ) to everyone for all the motivation to go just a bit further…

    Body mounts are easier to replace too, well heck.. while the body is lifted may as well do the brake and fuel lines. Oh snap the tank is rusty.. let’s replace that and the sender and… sorry I am not helping am I :cool:;)

    Hey guys I had to step back from my resto project due to a health issue… as well as most things that require standing. Was diagnosed with cellulitis in one of my feet . Was told that it was close to turning into sepsis. All from stepping on a sheet metal screw that went through my shoe & approx 3/8”into my foot. Cellulitis is a tough bacteria to kill but this last round of antibiotics hopefully will do the trick . Looks pretty ugly and hurts like hell . Too much time horizontal for me is nota good thing .
