It looks like it could use some reinforcement in the rockers, so I'm going to quote your previous post right back at you.



I chose that picture of the three because I took it. The title has changed though, probably Photobucket.
It has the light, which I rarely see because I beat it.

I want that stretch!!!!!!

belated congrats

Your thread titles are enigmas, Frank.

Glad I finally stumbled on this one. (Was my silence deafening?)

Any plans for it?

Has it replaced anything in the fleet, or does it just spread the miles thinner among everything?

Here I thought you simply didn't care anymore.

Take a guess- you know me!

The initial plan is to simply evaluate and make sure all the stock stuff is up to snuff. However I've already made a very nice deluxe trunk liner, parcel shelf, engine blanket, and grille block for it. And I discovered my initial impression of the solidity of the front suspension mounts was faulty. As of now alignment is good and structure is adequate but the famous Metro welding will be wanted in the near future.
