Sorry Craig.  Not for sale as I still harbor the same intentions as you,
though you are much, much further along the curve than I am.  If I had
the storage space I'd be shopping for a rust free '81S right now to
restore.  Either in Cirrus Grey or Cosmos Silver.  First choice would be
the Cirrus.  Already had the Mars Red.  Will it ever happen?  I don't
know.  But I will cling to that dream, so the parts will probably be
sold at my estate sale.

Same here.  And if you ever decide to bail on your project, I have dibs.
I'm especially envious of your "new" seats.  But I hope you complete it
and enjoy every minute of it.
