Never thought I'd find these in great shape!!



But it happened! I finally found a set of these rear interior panels that aren't cracked! Usually these are busted all to pieces. The ones that are currently in the fairmont have at least 5 chunks out, and several cracks. These red panels are as near perfect as you can get. Probably nobody ever sat in the backseat of the car they came out of. I also bought some bucket seats, a plain front bumper without the guards (guards are lame), a rear side window trim, some misc trim, some tail light lenses, and even a passenger side door. The bucket seats are a big plus because now I can put a floor center console in, as soon as I find one.

A Bit More Authentic


I'm always striving to find ways to make the Coke Machine more and more authentic looking. I finally came across a breather that looks like the one originally used on the Coke Machine, and for a good price. Got it at the Charlotte Auto Fair. Jared went too, but he never posts here anymore because he's a Fail-bot.

Sprucing Up Some Parts



















Here is a picture of my "restored" 1995 Mustang Spindle/Rotor/Caliper thats going on the F-Bomb, along with the newly painted rear axle. Looking good so far. These parts are ready to bolt on. I degreased them and used a little stiff wire brush all over. I used Krylon Satin Black on everything except the Calipers where I used a special Caliper Paint in silver; and the brake drums, which I chose to paint Castcoat Gray

Rare Fairmont Futura Jacket Patch


Had to grab this while the gettin' was good on ebay. I searched ebay for about 14 months before this finally showed up. I started to think there was no such thing!
