Sorry for the lack of updates, but not much has happened. Here what has: Flaming River got the final column built and sent. With the IDIDIT adapter, it works fine. If Flaming River ever gets there adapter finished, it will be a bit longer giving more dash clearance. For now I'm good with what I have. Got the top put on and it looks really nice. It's the Canvas/cloth type top. They don't do white in cloth so I got black. Guess it would be super difficult to keep clean in white,
.. I took the car to Classic Car Studio (show,"Speed is the new black" guys). They quoted me way more than I could even imagine to finish the console and back seat, so cross them off the list. Ended up hauling it to Flanagan IL, about 3 hrs from me to a shop called "The Custom Shop". Had lots of great input from others about their work. They are working on it now. They will be building the front of the console, recovering the back seat, installing my carpet and Hush Mat, hooking up the alarm system with auto start and keyless entry, Making a sub box in the left rear quarter, installing a stereo system with amps, aligning the front and rear end, installing one touch exhaust cutouts, and trying to get the rear door panels looking like something that belongs on the car with speakers. Also a few minor items. Pretty much finishing it up. I have been busy with a load of pinballs that I bought from another collector (13). They are all sold except one, and another that I am going to restore and keep. Plus got in a couple more Rock-Ola Jukes, one of which is a very rare Harley Davidson Edition. Got them all loaded with CD's and ready to sell.
