Thanks. Yeah the Red one is the newest member. That's my oldest boy looking it over. A 97 2dr to replace his 99 4dr that got boned last week. Smacked hard at the front right wheel. Tweaked it into the trans tunnel.

Sure is. Hopefully get caught up on some other things and get back to finishing the wiring harness and paint it soon.
