MZ, you get a "you suck" for those seats!! That's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, at the right price, for my own '63 Dodge truck.

It's simply good timing, a guy at work lost the t-belt on his A6 and is parting it out. he needs it gone by tomorrow, so I got really lucky, should be easy to wire up too.

She sure is coming out beautiful.

Makes me miss my old gal

They really are one of the prettiest trucks ever, IMO.

I'm going to enjoy yours vicariously, so please keep the pics coming.

Those seats look better than the ones in my wife's Audi we're still driving. Good to see the project back on track. Thought you and Terafon fell off the face of the earth.

Awesome!

When I see projects like these, done well, I wish I had apprenticed with someone with this kind of talent. As it is I'm an office worker and other than the most routine maintenance have never done or participated on a project like this.

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous and the meticulous work leaves me awed.

Awesome, and coming together nicely.......I'm finishing up a lite resto on my wife's high school graduation present......a 78 VW bug convertible.

I replaced the entire top a couple of years ago, body and paint are ok, but the interior was completely shot........almost done with it.....pics when I'm done!

Keep up the good work!

Dorkpunch posted on his pickup truck today which got me thinking we could have a thread on stalled-out build threads.

A few weeks ago I sent a PM to Terry asking about his barn find Mercury Marauder restoration, but no reply.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Sometimes I think nothing kills a build thread quicker than for me to start following it, and not just on ADVrider either.

I'm friends with MZ on the evil site known as Facebook. He's been doing something silly like moving a building from one foundation to another. I think that may have cut into his truck building a bit. Oh, and he took a motorcycle ride in there someplace also.
