      Yeah I know what you mean. Most the shop owners down here are arrogant AHole's and Rape artists.

And when I let eat , the clutch pedal or something is binding up and cant push the pedal it for the next gear. Have to push hard as hell and something pops loose and then it good till I romp on it again.:wtf::BangHead:

              Hood seal showed up today. forgot I even ordered it. Perfect fit. 20200117_151320.jpg 20200117_151245.jpg Found it on EBAY, have gotten a couple different parts from this company. They are US made in house according to the Company. I would recommend this company if you don't like Chineseium stuff. Same price range.

              Hell , They might be the only business left in Detroit.:rolleyes:
              :lol:

                Never thought of that seal I guess is a good thing?
                China is getting better on parts.

                Went to the local pick and pull and got a pair of newer seats.

                You can see the air bag deployed and popped open the seam. My wife says she can repair that. They sure feel better than 52 year old seats. Came out of a 2015 Dart. I will have to do some modifications to get them to fit properly. So I have to make up my mind to swap em in or not.

                  Was putting my cuda seats up in the rafters and down fell a plastic water tank. Right on my hood.:bs_flag::eek::rolleyes::BangHead::mad:

                    Seats in . My old seats were in pretty decent shape for being 52 years old. Black vinyl down here in the summer is a bit hot.

                          Sorry to see Al, you can fix that later if need be.
                          Those seats look sharp! Nice work.

                            I'm gonna go back and get the back seat so I can save the cloth inserts and see if a shop can recover my rear seat with it to match

                                That's a real sharp dent from what I see. I do pantless dent repair and looks like that one will crack the paint and not come out very good.
                                Nice seats Al and like fitting most things in our old cars takes a ton of work.

                                Yeah, the dent is deep and has the hood support under it so I can't get to the back side.
