    I hear you guys. I need to go check it out and see the true condition. Is the price he is asking OK. I read that Summit closed out that block in the early 2000's for $300.00 was thinking I would offer him that.

    I got the suspension off and was able to do the shelby drop and laid on a coat of self etching primer.

    Always good to see somebody else make progress! My 69 Cougar is being put on hold-again.
