    You could have used the Fred Flinstone method to stop with those floor boards.

    Mini tubs... it should be a nasty car when you get done with it. :nice:

    How did the new pans fit? i passed up a capri that needed pans because I was afraid they would fit like chit and be a pain to put in.

    Yea, I know the price on the weather stripping kit-deadly. And to Mike, the pans came from Fox Restoration. They did not fit perfectly, it took some beating to make them work.
