    replace the fuel pump. new filter and lines upfront, started and ran , took it for a ride 2 miles up to 40 mph , stops not the greatest needs adjustment, but a lot better than the last 1/10 mile test ride where i pushed it home. pull the seats and the old gold carpet to see how bad the floors are, 2 small rust holes on right side none on the left even though it looks a lot worse. put the mirror on. new paper from 2000 in calif,
