    Oh those are the fake Porsche looking brakes… 😎   Boy your car makes a funny noise when pushed… You sure you got that trans all out together right?  It’s leaking from the backing plate too… 8-(    You plan on having us get it back to daily driver status?

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    Ripped out the old insulation and headliner on Friday. It was extremely dirty to say the least. Took a while to scrape all the bits that didn’t come out in big chunks. 2F3CF7ED-67A9-4FE2-AE0B-C7FFB2D70719DD293617-2F44-43A1-8FBF-8709C809B178
    Took the interior quarter panels out to find a surprise underneath. 0F0B0546-CF38-45DF-85ED-4DAA296D5BCB
    Then stuck Retro Sound in the cargo area behind the backseat and in the quarter panels.

    The inside of you car was a mess! All the old insulation had started to fall apart so out it all went.

    Riley laid down fresh retro sound on the rear parcel tray and quarters. 8A16B27D-84B7-4639-8813-64B00BB401A2

    I cleaned/inspected, repaired/prepared all of the mechanical sunroof parts for install. Rail location clips are unusually missing. Only one broken one this time. 27F5C72D-6AD3-4DBE-95EA-92E434177556

    Old seals suck!C65D1A3E-1DBB-4FA5-82F7-1964862D4FCE97010F45-1E0A-4907-8F6B-C1E8FE4D8AFF

    Ready to go.A90FD177-42BD-4944-97E7-08151E267B9D

    We will build it if it comes.

    I wonder if the retro sound will insulate sound as well as the floormat?

    Thanks Pat and Riley.  Looking good

    Pass b-pillar and qtr window seal wrapped. Main  headliner stretched. Now to cut a big hole in it  for the sunroof.40EBE8AF-5F7F-4504-AD5B-42AB8875082768E8C542-8BF5-472E-8A21-49191A8E1030AF0EBF1A-7481-4715-A61F-A3F18423A84B

    Parkway work is no different than the resto work when it comes to complications… Taking too long and the bill being something to have to reckon with.. every time…   Plus, only working on part of the car, insures only part of the car is dialed in, and some other part of the car is sure to fail, and in probably 10 miles or less!!!!!

    I think we need to do more driving and road time after we get one done.. I guess charge $100 and drive out to palisade and fruita and get it hot…

    Drivability is important… especially when the bills get up around $10K on a drive in job…. 😎   Yeah… happens so fast…

    I go into these things assuming its going to cost a minimum of 25% more than estimate.  If Franz tells me 5k I plan for 7K.
