so this weekend is suppose to be nice and i plan on starting on the stang some since i honestly havent touched it in a year. im gonig to start on some of the weight reduction that i have planned for it. i also plan on trying to document some of it and weighing it with the scale i have. it may not be the most accurate but you will have a good idea of what it weighs.
i will probably also take off my rusty deck lid and install my glass deck lid. if i have the time im going to switch my doors over for my manual doors that i picked up about a year ago. my current doors have some pretty good rot on the bottom of them.
