Nothing....it is stored over 800 miles from where we live.   Since I can't see it I just look through my pics of it every week or so.   :grinyes:

Grafting a new section of non A/C firewall in tomorrow. The top half portion was shot so it's getting done also.
Spray Rust Bullit in there too while I have it open.

Installed a new gas tank today, fixed a loose ground on one of my parking lamps, and adjusted my headlights. Probably not too much more this weekend, just keep looking for parts. Need a heater valve and cable to get my heater hooked back up, then look for more parts for a 4 speed swap. Got the A833 OD and a shifter, still need a bellhousing and all the linkage. Maybe I'll pull the sidecover on the A833 and see how the gears look...

Hopefully I'll start mine!!  Hasn't run in over a month.  I'd love to get in there and inspect the brakes that were locking up, but I know I won't have time.

Hope all of you have fun with your Mopars this weekend!

Hopefully Jefferson doesn't get all the rain/thunderstorms/light flooding we have had between Thursday and today.  It's good to see another member has attended that show before.  I went three years ago for the first time (down here at school it's like 2 hours away compared to 5 from back home) and it was a blast.  Watertown had a college party at one of the bars off Hwy. 26 we hit up and the swap area was a blast to scrounge for parts.  Unfortunately, they don't really have a lot of E-body parts and quite a few of the vendors were jerks when I inquired about E-body/Challenger parts (smarta** responses & such).
That said, enjoy the show/swap meet and hopefully you don't get too much rain, if any. :cheers:

   I will be pulling all the trim off---the vinyl top---the doors ect. and then start in on stripping off all the old paint.  I'm a couple off months behind my intended schedule.  Just as the weather is starting to get nice out I am tearing  it down. Oh well--going to a car show and then to our fist big drag race opener tomarrow to pick up a little inspiration and motivation.
