Nice. I'm not a fan of saggy things.

Sometimes things just get to the point where they need to be "perked up".

No. But I do like packages coming to the house. It makes me feel loved. I am buying parts when I come across them or I find a screaming deal that is too hard to pass up. The 2F is waiting to be machined and rebuilt. I have a rebuild kit for the NEW 4 sp transmission. I have an extra front axle that needs to be cleaned for a cut and turn. Um. . . Justin. As I had mentioned prior I am not too excited about the MAN - A - FRE front brake conversation kit I had got a while back, so I'm rethinking that. Then I have the parts for a power steering conversation.

If you are having conversations with your power steering, I would suggest you see a therapist

I did that when I had my '76...Now I have shelves loaded up with "new" and used finely aged parts - If that stuff was wine I'd be rich now
