    Painter’s got the heads fixed real nice. I hope to have them back tomorrow.

    Meanwhile, I have modified the driver’s seat to slide back 1.5” further(Omar is a tall dude) by trimming the stops on the rear of the seat sliders. Although not necessary, I welded some latch teeth to hold the seat another 1/4” rearward.

    Any idea what caused the guides to disintegrate? Never seen that before.

    Didn’t that motor sit for a long time after it was built?

    Some sort of corrosion from sitting? Crazy to see that!

    I also know if the guides are put in with a loose spec that can happen. Also, The proper procedure for installing guides is with the head heated up. That way when the motor is warm you know the guides won’t move and self destruct

    The guide was tight in the head. It wore out on the inside for some reason.

    I’ve seen the guide come loose in the head before…Usually from over-heating.

    Started on Donna’s interior last week. Stripped most of it Thursday afternoon. F61B2B15-68D5-4619-A041-0C17261BDEC5

    Cleaned it up. Installed new padding and started on the headliner Friday. Bit more on Saturday. Forgot pics…doh!

    Finished the headliner, insulated and carpeted the rear parcel area, and installed the rear quarter panels today. 31E9D241-9962-41DB-AFD1-D6E0ABC0A25891E927B7-7680-46E3-9696-5628535AB7587EF34BFD-8082-4183-BBAE-E327D090AB40

    Franz and I also slipped fresh rubber and trim on the windows and roped them in. D4E64046-E139-4392-BDF8-C5CE1A9F1F04

    Riley tore down and rebuilt the pass door with all new seals on Friday and knocked the drivers side out today. 1E0A2842-2070-4A07-BB68-DFCF2BFC9876

    We will build it if it comes.

    Worked on Donna’s doors on Friday and most of today. Took all the old seals out and put new seals in. D60F6099-99EA-49DF-A130-B5E113C0A168FF9A04DA-EFA8-494D-8384-2141867827E0C9C7BAF1-9EC6-49D7-AB8F-B1974E9304FFF4201840-247D-43C2-8F01-B2E597D15506
    Put clips in both pieces of quarter panel trim and one piece of door trim as well.
