    Some of this is definitely more fun than body work/paint, sanding. We got plenty of that left to do, been really cold here lately.

    Some mistakes are too much fun to be made only once.

    Got some of the carpet started, get some of that done so we can put wiring harness and other inner firewall stuff in. I think 4 hides ordered for the rest.

    Also I wanted to point out this firewall recess we made for my distributer many years back, I refer to it now as "The Fordskin"

    Carpets are looking pretty good, dual master cylinders mounted, mounted a lokar pedal pad to the wilwood brake stuff, working on the plumbing to chassis and the line lock.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
