    Tell me about it Steve, had an opportunity the other day to snap a pic of a stock one and could not believe how cramped it was under the hood.


    Been busy with all the wiring upgrades and eliminating not needed components, but I almost have a full interior again!

    Is that Mort rocking and rolling or maybe just a suspension test?

    Heck, I'd just be happy if mine was where yours is right now... I'd love to have the 4.3 instead of m worn out 4.0.. One day she'll get a repower!!!

    I am afraid that 4.3 is dead now. Can't start it and I am not going to buy another set of injectors that will last only a month. Time to update.

    Old & busted


    New hotness!

    And, stupid bright low beams!


    Me thinks I might have to order the side ambers to match, freshen them up.

    Well pretty disheartened this morning, sandblasted morts sliders yesterday, and found a spot that had the consistency of wet paper.


    So now what?

    Option 1 - cut out the bad, replace with sheet metal

    Option 2 - cut out the bad, replace with new panels, if I can find them... the whole 2 door rarity conundrum

    Option 3 - cut out entire floor, replace with new panels, see option 2, basically rotisserie mort, and modify to suit.

    Lots of problems and benefits with all options, anyone have any suggestions?

    Christclapper where do you get your restoration panels? All I can find is the simple basic panels, mostly 4 door parts.


    Now I am off to have a little cry!

    Is it just that spot, or the while area?

    The whole floor, I am thinking it would be a good thing to beef up the seat mounts, and anything else in the floor area. Plus I beat the crap out of the floor to fit exhaust, it would be nice to clean all that up.
