    Thanks!!! Was more an observation than a complaint for sure. Mine was supposed to be one of those bring it back to driver quality projects...but as I got into it I just could not half-a$$ things at all and it turned into a much larger project...the door hit my budget firmly in the a$$ as my budget left the building LOL.

    I inherited a 70 scj dragpack 4spd XR7 convertible. It's an 0F94Q vin. She was pretty rough but I'm trying to bring her back from the brink. It had an interior fire and some rust issues from living in Cedar Rapids before being plucked from the salty streets. I've stripped it to the carcass, media blasted and primered her so far. I think Merc only made 7 of these.
