    Hello Alex, haven't seen you on the forum much lately. How is your car running? I post less now that I have substantially completed my project, now it is on to maintenance like leaking rear axle seal, etc. Hope you and the family are well.

    You inspired me to rebuild my 67 C4, for which I thank you. It was actually fun and I learned an awful lot about how professional rebuild shops had short changed my rebuild in the past.

    Now I seek further influence. I bought a pair of used 94 Mustang seats and with very little effort, can now attach my original 67 seat tracks to them. I need to recover them; all of my seats actually. Are you able to talk me out of that task and into the hands of a professional?

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for the compliment. From what I can see in your collage-pic - you've taken yours quite a bit further than ours. (My wife got the '67 back in '80 and drove it to school.) We've done two restorations on it - first one was a "poor-man's" job, and the 2nd one went a bit further where we had new quarter panels (Ford) and door skins put on. Other than that we've done all the work ourselves, including the paint job(s.) It really needs "complete" rotisserie-job - floors, radiator support, trunk area as it has some rust/rot. I have yet to dive into welding, but like you mentioned in another message - I love working with my hands. (Working in IT behind a desk STINKS! )

    Let me know if you have a website/link showing your resto in detail - I'd be very interested to see it!

    Hello Ken. Thanks for the kind words. I certainly think no less of someone whom has the opportunity to have a pro do the work for them. I'm happy that you've enjoyed the blog. I wrote it partially to allow people like yourself to know what they would be getting into by taking on the project. Knowledge of the task ensures that it will be completed rather than buried beneath a pile of boxes in the garage.

    I love working with my hands and often wish I would have gone into engineering instead of software. If I could do it all over again, I think I would have. Aviation is another of my many desires that haven't worked out (yet). :-)

    Hello oalshove. It seems that I have seen your name in your blog about 'ol rusty, but I cannot find it. I (Ken Green aka sixseven) am just dropping a line to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed your restoration write up. You have been doing a tremendous and admirable job at both the written documentation part as well as the physical restoration. It looks like you claim to be a computer geek, but I would let you into my engineering circles any day. Good luck on the remainder of your work.

    I am currently too involved with working for a living so I just delivered my 67 to a restoration shop for a complete body redo. It will cost, but I will get the car back quicker and it will let me continue to focus on our companies. May be when I retire I can do more of this type of work, but then I am also interested in flying float planes to remote bodies of water as guide for fisherman, too. Life is grand when you have a full plate isn't it!
