    Purchased this kit. Since the TC is out already it only makes sense.

    Gave in and purchased 5 of these on closeout. Had a chance to see them mounted yesterday and they look great. Plus they are cheap in price and great in quality.

    Started cleaning up the firewall and got the door cards and jump seats out to send them off to be recovered. Also picked up (4) 17x9 American racing wheels.

    Also started turning my rusted rear half doors into a one piece drop down tailgate. No idea how this will turn out, but there are some decent write ups on here.

    Well got my jump seats back. Impressed would be an understatement. Before and after pics attached. Freshly powdercoated frames too.
