Grin JaxLax builds a Family LUBR

I'm going to use this as the place holder for all future threads. I'll update each individual thread/build section here and leave one at the end with a timestamp.

Well, Hurricane Irma couldn't stop me and I ended up buying another 77 from a member here [it's up to him to speak up] who was more than accommodating to me due to constantly changing circumstances.

Loaded her up from ATL and ran across the state to SC between Hilton Head and Savannah. White knuckled for a few hours in wind and rain trailering her, but we got all the way there and made it to it's new home last night.

But back to the real future:
I'm going to be building a family friendly LUBR. Really excited for this one in particular as it already has A/C installed (doesn't work), but parts and such are there. For now it's going to become a daily driver so I can get a real good shake down on her and figure out where I truly want to go.

There's a few pin holes in the front floors, but otherwise nothing that will need replacing.

First things on the list:
Flush fluids and bleed brakes, rewire ignition, turn exhaust to side exits, shocks for the hood and hatch, add missing lenses, some new window cranks, and get the radio working.

Then it's gonna be a year or so of collecting parts, refining my plan, and just enjoying driving and working on her before pulling it apart.

You can use a rust encapsulation paint of your choice and treat those floor boards. If you use some type of tape on the bottom the paint will seal the pin holes.
