    Well at least the body is in excellent shape which I take to mean NO RUST!! I hate that stuff. The rest of the car is easy compared to rust repairs. At least it is for me. You are on the perfect forum to guide and give you advise if need be.

    WELCOME!!:cool:

    I got rid of the mid 70's high back buckets that were in the car.
    The guy I bought it from, almost as an after thought, asked if I wanted the original 1970 seats. He said he would throw them in if I wanted them.
    "HELL YES" I said.

    Looking great! The previous owner obviously didn't know the value of those seats! I bet you loaded them up as quick as you could! :cool:

    I couldn't get the words out fast enough.
    I sold the high back buckets to a local guy and that paid for new seat covers and cushions.
    Here is a picture of the interior before I installed the rugs and all the panels.
    Got a little carried away witht the dynamat.

    I ripped out all the old wiring and installed a new 21 circuit wiring harness.
    I Plan on putting a Vintage Air system in along with dual fans, and maybe power windows and seats at a later date.
    I also installed new Morrison 3 point seat belts.
    Here is the guage package I installed. Autometer guages in a Covans insert.
