Dear Ford Truck Enthusiasts:

We have a new advertiser on our web site. As we did for Macs,
we're going to make a brief announcement for 2 days. Please
show your appreciation to them for helping to support the web
site and lists by checking out their site:
(This is an "anchor" page that will forward you to theirs)

Arizona Working Mat Sales has a truly unique product, the
"Working Mat". It protects your pickup bed and holds cargo
in place (you've got to visit the site to view how it does this).

We would like to have them know that you heard about them via
the Ford Truck Enthusiasts group.

Now returning you to our regularly scheduled program...

Subject: front seat

hey don, i got the seat out of an 88 plymouth reliant. i think you would be
better off getting a seat from a small chrysler such as a new yorker or a
small body imperial. trouble is most were 4 door. they have some really
plush seats and the mounts are almost identical to the falcon. the fords of
those years had the hump up for the front seat. you have to bend the
mounting flanges on the chrysler to a 45 to get them to fit and drill a
couple of extra holes but she works pretty well. you also might have to
raise them slightly to move over the drive shaft hump. i put mine in resting
on the hump and it is hard to move but most of the time i'm the only one
driving it. if my wife drove it more i would make it more adjustable. the
good part is it only cost 40 bucks for an outrageously comfortable ride and
you can usually match the color pretty easy.

as far as the flaming, like i said, nothing i love better than a good
arguement. you can usually take the boy out of the trouble, but it's harder
to take the trouble out of the boy. besides, if i gave you a virtual
rasberry, you might not argue with me anymore.

T-bird Terry
