      That's what I'm doing. March was six years.

      A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

          There is nothing more dangerous than those who seek to alter the will of men through force or deception rather than logic.

            Nice project, can't wait to see the progress.

            I have a late 69' IIA with the lights "corrected", I think they changed them mid year.

              Thought I'd start with the transmission. I am pleasantly surprised to see that at least some of the gears aren't a mass of rust after sitting out in the open for who knows how long. After wrestling the parking brake off I was able to get it spinning on all gears. And I found my first transmission nail.

                    I would clean that rust off before reinstalling.

                        My friend, Mike had a decent transmission with a crusty transfer case that he was willing to sell. This one is cleaning up nicely. Gaskets, seals and misc. small parts are on their way from Trevor.
