Went for an early drive on Sunday. Always amazes me how much it makes me smile. Cleaned her up and took a couple pics.

Looking good Keith. Early is the key word in our part of the country at this time of year!

If you are up early enough, you can see the Comet Neowise. Bonus, and a nice background for a PIC.

I have been prepping my 70 for sora blue paint some time this winter while still driving her most every evening to enjoy these beautiful Montana vistas with the wife who needs them to keep her sanity!

Reattached trim around hood scoop. New battery, still hunting down a few electrical problems. Attached newly made hood prop. Attached new plate with nos bolts. New Sora blue paint still needs a final buff. Stare at car alot. That's what I did today.

That's actually a pretty neet idea
I'll use this as a basis to fix the one on My Z

That’s a great idea. This is what I did several years ago. Poor mans wheel caps. Rattle can tops with plastic cheapo Nismo caps fixed to it. The bore size is spot on and just held on with double sided tape.
