    Thanks all, it's nice to know I won't be looking at it for another show season wishing it was ready to drive.

He started to restore it but never got past disassembly and when he retired from being a union electrician, him and his wife decided to sell their home and buy a small place. He didn't have a place for the car and hadn't touched it in twenty years. He found out I was a car guy and asked me if he were to give me the car, would I promise to get it back on the road and keep it? As soon as it's on the road, I'm taking it to his house for a visit. He never has come to see it, he wanted to wait until it was done.
    Are you going to see the previous owner soon?

    He would really love it.

    Yeah, as soon as I finish the last few interior items we're going to give it a good scrubbing and take a run by his house. Probably a few weeks or so. I'll post pictures and see if he might have an old picture of it somewhere. He owned it for almost 50 years, he should have something.

    I am 19 and i am in i real love with my mitsubishi pajero 1987. I am thinking already about making a life project, and am thinking with part should i begin with. So after a lot of thinking i decided fisrt to chose which engine i like, and i fall in love with a small block chevy 355 cid supercharged-550BHP. What improvments should i do to my car so this engine fits and i can use it until i die or it breaks down, whichever come first

    Welcome to the site, while we're glad to see you here..... but you shouldn't try to create a thread in someone else's build thread. You can start your own by going to the top left marked "Forum" then select the appropriate forum to work in and create a new thread in it ... easy peazy.... LOL.

    Just about done; finished up the interior, made some sill plates to re[lace the factory style wide rubber plates. Now just wrapping up a few details but I'm about ready to start giving it some road time. The curved back seat was really tough to cover; I did it twice and I still came out with a big wrinkle at the curve but it's the best I could get it. Maybe I'll revisit later; I hit that frustration point where I said "good enough for now, I just want it on the road."

    Very Nice! And good to know you are starting to enjoy the driving/showing it off part.

    That back seat looks really nice! I'm sure the wrinkle bothers you but that still is way nicer than most DIYer interior jobs I've been seeing!

    And still nicer than some so called professional upholstery jobs too. Try the steam trick on the seat while it is out or have you be there, done that already. The car is amazing and congratulations on a fine job.

    Thanks, all! I'm hopefully heading out to the first local show this weekend. Brand new Holley fuel pump died; have to replace it tonight.

    Good to hear about the show, stinks to hear about the bad pump already.

    Good luck at the show! Aggravating as new parts being defective are at least it didn't die on the way to the show.
