I dont even want to know how you found that. hahaha Darn good stuff right there.

I know a guy. ;)

I recall the swing tags on my daughter's Beanie Babies. Collectors wouldn't remove them. We thought they might contribute to her education, nope.
I'm torn between installing this or keeping it in an airtight case.

It's hard to find good red seatbelts. Have an OK set with poor webbing.

Found a vibrant red set, with rusty hardware. :(

I do need to figuire out how to slide the left cover off in order to thread the red webbing on the female side. Anybody know?
Wanted to say that the lever action of these new belts is really smooth. I wouldn't of ever known that without the side by side comparison.

Miss Kitty is going topless, seasonally.

She is a hardtop and has hard doors, so the Real Steel door bows needed modifying to mimic her stock door bows. This involved removing the beveled trim that hits the hard doors. It's only tack welded in six spots or so. A strip of metal also needed to come off the remaining bow piece.
After modification:

These early straight doors now fit perfectly. They pre-date the inward door lean that came with later, corner windowed tops.

The doors also fit the Real Steel B pillar perfectly without modification.
