To the top for a friend in Hawaii to find easy, good morning Mike
Back on the hill..
One word to all my friends here following.. Thanks I scrubbed her down Saturday, jacked her up and put the rears on skates to move her around. this 60 year old's neck has been on fire for two days feeling much better today Last picture a friend here did Thank you @Bigdummy
Yesterday a friend stopped by and took me to Jerry's Steak house, a great place that has been open here for 40 years , I had to drive his grain truck from the shop in town to his farm, well worth my time
I just read this thread, very cool. Subscribed.
Thank you, great to see folks are enjoying my direction of this 66
Custom work ! Checking before I spend big money buying and shipping bucket seats for Victoria. . Looks promising so fare I would say
I do have a member here offering a nice set of 66 correct seat's for Victoeia and they seem to be a hard to find and complete set. so I am just covering my basses and playing with this idea that has not cost a thing yet. We will see if @Ddaddy wants to share his sweet buckets here with us .
Thank you Tone !! doing my best to enjoy and do it my way

It was for me a perfect day with taff guys i love this mans place !
A 360 with a few mods and you will love the 350 HP!
Enjoyed a warm sunny day in the shop, forgot how many bolts hold this fender on, but it's off and ready to hang on the wall, now to start the clean up and hang the solid fender I bought 6 years ago .. lort ! it has been that long
Pulled the Hookers out today to heat cycle the POR 20 before I move forward, had to harden my two coats so I don't scratch them up on the install I could smell the POR 20 I put on them a years ago
I bought this old smoker grill for 15 dolors last fall, yep I am a hillbilly
Test seat (lower front) looks promising This will get my floor shifter where I want it, I can now move the seat forward and not hit the shifter, nothing pretty but we did it our selves
Plus, Used Bucket seat for this 66 is 300 or more plus shipping, so I had to see what I could do to the seat I have, I still may go buckets down the road
To me it has more heart and soul, recovered like that instead of pricey OEM covers or switching to buckets.
You have known me a long time, and I am not happy unless I can do some one off stuff, this seat will be tested this way then down the road get it covered by a pro
After installing sub frame connectors, you will hardly notice a difference but the more you drive the car the more differences you will notice..at least that is the way it was with me. It is nice to have a car that has the rear wheels follow the front wheels and lots of other benefits.
Having the sedan (post car) I believe it will stay strong, if it was a coup car I would be doing frame connectors for sure. not moving the springs in so I will have more slip then grip on my tires I believe , but I am always looking to learn, so many folks do believe I will not need them Thank you for your post
