Yep, I can get them mail order online, just couldn't find any where local for them. Kinda surprised as the interchange is pretty big and covers alot of years and models. Found a listing for napa, but they don't stock them.

If NAPA can get them, it should only be a day or two to get unless it was something you wanted to do this weekend. The bushing shot in yours?

Good looking car. This is a nice change compared to all the ORV build threads.

Rear window removed in anticipation of headliner install. Also removed the old headliner. Gonna install some insulation on the roof and sides, paint the rear package tray area and clean up the rear window channel and replace all the hardware.

Still haven't committed to where I am doing the headliner install. Half tempted to try it myself. But will probably puss out

Also got my reverse lights wired up to the new floor shifter, even though I apparently don't have wiring or sockets for reverse lamps in the rear of the car?

FYI, I just payed a buddy to install mine, and I stood there watching saying to myself "why am I paying this jackass money for what I can clearly do myself". Buy a headliner, hang it from the bows (keep them in order, and scotchbrite them till they are slippery), brush good glue around the edge of the headliner, start tucking it around the edges and run the clamps down, roll the windows up and park that bitch in the sun. Done.

I wouldn't pay to have it done again. Good luck.
