Not pretty yet but mechanicals are shaping up.

Replaced driver's side glass and both wing window gaskets. Rebuilt the heater valve. Repinned the door locks to match the ignition key. Replaced the front springs and the bias ply (square rocks) with Bridgstone Ecopia 195/80r/16. Drives and handles so nice I havent regretted going to the dark side on those.
