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.
