Wishing all y'all a happy and safe Christmas.

There really is. I have most of the firewall welded but still have quite a bit of grinding and finishing to do. Then I have to go to work on the toe boards.

The clutch and brake pedal holes as well as the accelerator holes have to be filled. There is still some welding to be done where the floorboards meat the toe boards also.

I doubt much more will get done until after Christmas but that is OK.

Mike, I have a Lincoln Versaille. Not sure of the exact year but I think they are all the same. The good ees is they are narrow and fit well. The negative is they have a funky rear disc brake set up which is expensive and difficult to get parts for. Also, mine is a 2:50 ratio and I will have to find another gear set for it.
Tthey are 9 3/8" rear ends but 9 inch gear sets are a direct bolt in as long as they are 28 spline units. So I understand.

I read your post last night in CT. Though I hate you have spent money on parts you aren't going to use, I do believe you will like the late model drivetrain if you are going to do a lot of traveling.

MARTINSR We had the bumpers done for the boss's Chevelle ($450 each!) and they were HORRIBLE. I couldn't believe after hearing the high cost that they would be so bad.
