    Why 3 inch vs 2 1/2 inch half shafts?

    A 3" tube is inherently stronger than a 2.5" tube

    Rear Steel Spring

    Hot Rod Air

    Anyone dealt with Hot Rod Air out of Selma, TX? They offer a replacement A/C (everything included) and I would like to know about anyones experience with their product. Think I'll go by next week & check it out. It uses the Sanden compressor & comes with evap, cond, dryer & hoses.

    Hole closure

    Currently going through my 79 & noticed several factory type holes, i.e. drain holes in the floorpans, a hole in each side of the windshield frames (under the removed windshield), etc. These are not rust holes. Is there any advantage to leaving them open or can I epoxy them up?

    Last Dash Question from me!

    What is everyones opinion on the custom dashes (Burlwood or Rosewood)? CA says theirs are real wood and the price reflects that, so I assume that MidAms are simulated wood (plastic). Do they look nice? What about long term? The other option would be to just buy new stock ones.
