    My best of wishes to your parents.

    Try car-parts.com i used that site and searched for the seats. Got them for 100 with the double door center consoler and paid another 250 in shipping.

    My Gen 1 is back on the road again after a year in the weeds after someone managed to hit one of the front tires in a parking lot, which wrecked the steering rack.

    I finished the install of the new rack and pinion and tie rod ends, and since I had to take the exhaust off to get the rack out, I had all the broken hangars and holes welded. I'm not in a hurry to get it to a shop right now with the pandemic blowing up where I live so I did the front end toe alignment with a tape measure in a flat parking lot. I was able to dial it down to 1.5/16" of toe-in measured at the tire treads – right at the -0.100" alignment spec. When it gets into the shop it'll be interesting to see how close I really got it.

    Drove it around for about an hour just burning old gasoline and I've missed this thing. It's good to be back. :)

    Good to see it back on the road. Do you have a front bumper, or was it smashed up in the parking lot incident?

    I'm curious what a good wood carver could do in respects to carving out a stock looking bumper!

    A good wood carver can make an exact duplicate.
