Little work done on the interior today. I have a kit from Le
Baron Bonney but it needed to be modified a bit because of the
chop. All in now, when Bryan brings me the seat back all that will
be left is the head liner, carpet and top. Still a bit of time but
it's getting closer. I love this car

I hope this helps with the motor mount. Let me know if you
need another angle
Here is Bryans handy work on the rear seat. You can see it
here but up close you can see what real craftsmanship looks like.
I had some old Y-Block emblems given to me a while back and
I finally figured out what to do with them.
Took it for a pretty good drive this weekend too, put 60 -
70 miles on it. No problems and drives very nicely. Having a good
time showing off to friends and giving rides

I've been having a blast in this car!
It's been on the road for a little while now and I may have
more than 300 miles on it but from the start it has had a bit of a
bounce or vibration when you get it up t0 65+ mph. Couldn't find
any place that would balance the "Wide Five" wheels I have on the
front so I just lived with it. Well, this week I took it to an old
shop in town (been around since 1947) I heard the did balancing on
the car. The guy that owns the place did it himself and let me
watch, not many places will do that. When it was all done he
charged me $40 and I gave him $50 since he walked me through it.
Always fun to learn something new.
Love this old alignment rack they have
Now the car will scream down the highway at 80+ without a
hint of vibration. And you ought to hear it with the C-4 and 4.11s
at that speed.
Took it over to Derrek's to show him and Kleet how it has
turned out, took them both for a ride too. Also saw Brendon (Kustom
Falcon) there too.

Took a nice little road trip to Bakersfield today, met Bryan
(crminal) at Dennys for lunch and a seat exchange. Car ran great
and road nice too, 180 miles round trip taking the back way on SR
65 and even had a stop in Terra Bella to see my cousin and shoot a

Top's on! What do ya think? Car is very close to done. Well,
sort of. Are they ever really "done"?
Here's a few photos of the top and the car out in the open.
Finally got some rain hear to clear all the dirt out of the air.
Not enough though, it's gonna take a lot more to get us out of
trouble. Oh well still having a good time with my Sedan.
Also added my firewall tags

Thanks Nick! Good to see you too! I missed a lot of people,
even at the so called "meet and greet" all I saw was Todd and
Eric. Oh well, at least I had a nice long chat about Y-Blocks with
this ol' guy
