Not Much Happening

Not much has happened in a month.  I'm still waiting to see any progress on my car's body work and paint.  It may be a long time before I see any of it, but who knows, it could happen tomorrow.  In the mean time, I received the single-pod dash in trade for my harness and gauges.  Not a bad trade, and I can recover the dash.

There are several threads on the Pantera International forum I've started:

Weber IDF's and Cain Manifold.

I think Weber carbs are classic.  The set of eight stacks on a V8 adds a sense of urgency and rawness.  I think I understand the temperamental nature of these systems, but there are some accounts that the IDF's are much easier to use on the street.

Do it yourself upholstery

I may be a nut for thinking that I can do this myself, but I think I will try it.  It's a skill that, with some practice and dumb luck, can be learned well enough to be adequate.
