          Nice,
          I went and looked at a 68 road runner a couple of weeks ago.

              Looks great.
              I got those AC parts off, are you going to Carslile this year, if so I can bring them.
              Shipping them would be expensive.
              Cost of the parts free, I consider them cores, but all the brackets and bolts are there.

                It’s worth the trip, book your motel now.
                It is 4 hrs from my place so I just drive home.

                It should be listed on their website.

                Sounds right, it’s the second weekend in July in past years.
                Hopefully the weather will be nice and mild like last year.

                    This car was a rusted out hulk when we decided to drag it home. It did have a title, but the build sheet was in bits and pieces due to a critter making a nest under the back seat. The fender tag was long gone also.
                    My wife asked me back around Thanksgiving what I'd like for Christmas. Thought about it and said I'd like to have a Custom fender tag made for the car. MMC Detroit made it. Didn't get here until this weekend, but better late than never!
                    It's based on reality given the cars original equipment, but the color has been changed to FE5 from the original Shit Brown Metallic. When they make the custom tags, they add a few characters on it to leave to no doubt that the tag is cosmetic and not original.
                    I need to paint it and put it in the car. We are planning to make our own inspection tag that says "Misty, Saved from the crusher by Bob and Aaron. September 15, 2012."

                      Cool!
                      I got lucky, my fender tag was there underneath the mudd but no build sheet. Same deal as you. Rodents used it for food and bedding.
                      Your car sure looks sweet!

                            I'm doing the same in mine. But mine was 2.45 carrier, so I'm redoing everything. Still tying to decide on 3.55 or 3.21? You mind me asking what brand of ring and pinion are you buying? By the way, I've followed your car awhile. Great job.
                            Thanks,
                            Woody

                            Thanks Woody
                            To be honest I don’t know the brand. I bought the whole set up from Doctor Diff. That guy knows his stuff and he wouldn’t steer me wrong so I leave it to him. $699 for the TrackLock Suregrip, Ring and pinion and bearing kit.
                            I’ll let you know the brand when it gets here tomorrow.
