well, put on your funeral clothes people, because we've decided the little red swift just isn't worth the work. there's too much daylight shining through where it shouldn't be. we're going to scrap it.

i'll post a couple of pics now that i pulled the carpet up.

so the hunt is back on for another host vehicle. i have a feeling it's going to be tough to find another one for $75. well, another one that looks this shiny up top for $75.

it would be nice if we could find a swift, since i already registered "forkenswift.com" in hopes of documenting the process on a dedicated site and forkenswift has a nice ring to it.
