It will probably get some mtx speakers in the future, just to keep with it's history. Only speakers in it now are hanging by 1 screw from the rear deck.

Yesterday was pretty much a bust. Left early, swapped out master cylinders and got a 1330 to 1310 conversion u-joint. While I was grabbing breakfast I got a call from my nephew. He was 2 hrs away in the mountains and his truck wouldn't crank. Sounded like fuel pump to me, but didn't hear back from him.

Cleaned up the garage, bench bled the master, then started bending brake lines again. I will never quit my day job. Figured I needed to get the steering shaft installed to make sure everything clears. Got out my rag joint rebuild kit, cleaned everything up, then found hopefully the last egg this car has to offer. Another parts trip done.

How'd you like to put your life in the hands of that? Even the bolt threads were marred up and dragged when trying to turn the bolt.

Around 4 nephew calls and asks if I can swap out his fuel pump. I said ok, and he was conveniently 5 miles away towing it to my house anyway. We were under a tornado warning. With the garage still full we had to do the work in the driveway. Pulled the pump in torrential rain, they went and got replacement. While I had my body under the bed held up by a jack installing the new pump, a tornado with 130 mph winds touched down 10 miles from my house. After that I was soaked to the core, cold, and done.

Driveshaft in the truck, going at lunch to see if they'll work with me to get another inch on it. I'm sure it won't be easy, but we'll see how it goes.
