    ...This weekend.
    Ran into Ron, a true Knight, at the PMC swapmeet, he told me he had a '70 Pig for parts, what did I want that he didn't want. So I swung by his place in Santa Rosa. Saw the Pig, took what I wanted. I'm going back this weekend to finish the job.
    Ron's keeping the tailgate and some sheetmetal, 55guy and bob on Birfield will fight over the roof/driver's door pillar. I want the doors ('cause I guess I got a thing for doors). Is it Tucker who needs the rear seat hinges? And who needs what else. I'm starting a list. Oh, the springs? No, I'm thinking I might actually sell something for money (to some '40 guy. Unless aPig really needs them somwhere) and buy a tank of gas. And a red star?

    I really need a stock air cleaner assy, reflectors, backup lights with good lenses, taillight lenses, a good defrost setup, because my hoses and such are toast. I don't suppose any of that stuff is there if it is pretty stripped down...

    Also, a license-plate light, big-time. The one-piece one, bet there is no way there is one of those suckers on there, hopefully I'm wrong?

    O.K., update;
    Ron put off the final parting out until next weekend.

    (Yotahilux) "How bout wiper arms?"
    I think so...

    (FJBen) "Hmmm...I would definitely be interested in the springs!!!"
    Hmmmm...Why?

    (FeO2pig) "How about some headliner bows? I need 4."
    I know those are there

    (lowenbrau) "Looking for a good rear bumper and a cargo floormat."
    I know it's got a front bumper (they make good rear bumpers, you know)
    I'll check on the rest.

    "Hey man - I've been meaning to give Ron a call about the rear seat hinges, if you could grab them I'd appreciate it greatly! Let me know -

    Tucker"
    Lazy bastard

    (bitfreak420) "Also, a license-plate light, big-time. The one-piece one, bet there is no way there is one of those suckers on there, hopefully I'm wrong?"
    Nope; for once you're right

    (bitfreak420) "I really need a stock air cleaner assy, reflectors, backup lights with good lenses, taillight lenses, a good defrost setup, because my hoses and such are toast. I don't suppose any of that stuff is there if it is pretty stripped down..."
    This Pig has a holley or somethin' on it, but I have an aircleaner or two...defrost hoses are available at your vacuum cleaner store...

    Hey, tucker74, good news is, I got your hinges...
    Bad news; I had to buy the whole back seat (upper & lower) to get them. You owe me big time.
    More bad news; they seem integral to the upper seat...
    Lemme take a closer look tomorrow after unloading.

    Those pesky rearseat hinges...

    The pair off the '70 look strange, I wonder if they're stock, 2 pics of them, one of the hinge in my '74.

    They come apart easy though! 2 screws and just slide 'em out.

    Well shoot - I don't care what they look like as long as they'll work. They seem to have holes in all the right places ...

    if you don't get a cargo floormat here, might try emailing bruce miller at bem@epocs.com...i know he had a couple fronts, so i'm betting the rear is underneath all the crap in the 79 he's got in longmont.
