I guess I will consider myself lucky. WAIT, I would love to have a 69 Bird. The front end parts are very pricey on the 69.

Thanks, I am very happy with the color. My old camera does the color no justice at all. It has a lot of pearl and metallic in it that the camera or me just cannot capture.

Drove the car to work today.
I forgot to put one clevis pin in on my shifter. LOL
Had to pull the cable to put it in gear. Found the pin next to the shifter and was on my way again.
My gauges are not working correctly. Called the manufacturer and I have a new set on the way with some upgrades to fix the original problem.
So it was a successful shake down run for me and the car.

It's been two years (almost to the day) since we slid the rear end in place.

Can't wait to see the finished product of all your hard work!
