Latest post of the previous page:

Finally found the correct plaid for the seats and investigating the cost to repair/restore the seats to their former glory. I have leather seats which was a rare option so I want to have the worn piece replaced and new plaid inserts made like this picture.

There is now an original orange plaid too, I just saw it in a car and for me that's a no go. It was in a silver car too so it looked silly as the silver car's originally had the grey/black plaid as an optional fabric color choice for 75/76.

I don't see the orange working with silver, but I see it working with orange!

Got over 500 miles on the rebuild so it was oil change and adjust the valves. I had forgotten what a piece of sh*t job it is to adjust the valves. Heat exchangers are in the way well, almost totally in the way and if you get one hand in there you can do it. Lots of scrapes and scratches and cursing but I got it done. Painted the valve covers again but I need to sandblast another set and paint them up right as this set is getting sorry looking. Two valves were tight but that's all and now it sings going down the road again. Now to put in the Pertronix
