Congrats! If that ain't a motivator... Shame you're like a thousand miles away. My wife and I are packing up and getting ready to sell or rent our place and we have all kinds of baby stuff. Not worth shipping it tho.

Love the video. It does so much more than pics. I wish we had a video-specific gallery here. All kinds of tips and tricks are easier to show directly than explain in words...

So now that it's mine, I intend to strip the interior, and put it back together, and make it drivable.

For Now............

Plan was to use it as a parts bus.........We will see....

Video of my favorite method of seat removal. Take out the two chair rail bolts, then do this.

Thanks goodness...mine is in her 40's now and I'm just beginning to relax a bit! Grandkids are a whole lot easier to deal with.
