    Default Friday the 6th.....3-30-14 new pics.....

    The Sport goes to get painted. Most all of the bodywork is done. Body and jambs getting done. Not concerned under the hood right now. I'll tend to that later. Pulling the hood to get it painted as well on the bottom. Having an extra scoop insert painted as well as the body side trim and mirrors. If I don't like the whole green look, adding the black to it is easy. Should be back in business in about 2 1/2 weeks or so. Also having the c-pillar emblem holes welded shut and leaving them off as well to smooth it up a bit.

    I'll post some pics of it before, during and after. I was planning on spending the day doing more prep work, but my daughter got ill so my wife took her to the ER and that was a 7 hour adventure, so I spent the day watching the tiny man. It was worth it. He's the coolest guy ever. Once I got home, I did manage to pull the gas lid off, seal some holes where the trim was, and re-align the passenger side exhaust pipe. Now....TV time before work tomorrow through Thursday....nearly 13 hour days, so no love for the Sport until Friday early morning when I pull the 1/4 windows, lights and header panel. Ready to get this over with. I did order the new replacement Mach 1 chin spoiler and now I have to find a new trunk script for the "Thunderbird" emblem. Good times.

    Actually, I can't wait either. It'll be nice having the Sport back in shape again.
