[DML] Raffle car Update

Well I am back to driving the raffle car every day now
As you remember an air conditioning line broke and it was too hot to drive  
for the past few weeks.  Started just fine
Today I made some cosmetic repairs
Fixed the trunk area (replaced stripped nutserts) 
Replaced the steering bushing 
Replaced the turn signal/wiper switches(originals were bent but  funcitional)
I also removed the body from the frame to do an air conditioning hose  
The thicker hose sprung a leak (air was working until that)
Took about an hour and a half and the body seperated from the frame easy 
One bolt stripped out and I ground it out and still need to replace the nut  
in the frame.
It is not totally back together yet since I want to get the air back up and  
running before I bolt the car back together.
There will be a frame off to get to the air conditioning line tech article  
in the next DCS magazine issue coming this October/Nov
I will be taking it to Evansville and I may choose to drive it there  instead 
of trailering it.
This week I will work on internal cosmetics as I have done little with the  
I don't think is has been cleaned in years.  Still looks  nice anyway.
This car starts extremely easy great engine and the automatic works  well.
I am getting lazy its nice not to have to switch gears in traffic.
I could become and automatic convert LOL
