Re: [T3] Even Darth Vader had a good side (Hint: The Erkson family has a new member)

BTW, the radio works. The far right button is ON, the middle button is OFF, and the left button is a LOUD switch. Left dial is volume and right dial is frequency selection. Interesting that I is ON and O is OFF just like what's used on many appliances and computers today.

The front right fender needs replacing, noooooo doubt about it, it's rusty! There are also quite a number of locations with bubbled up paint. It looks like someone welded a large practice bead and then painted over it. There's also some front air plenum rust but not as severe as mine. But the pan is in good condition with the smallest of holes under the battery. It's not pristine but it's can -- and will -- be used for daily driving while I make mostly minor repairs to the body. That pretty yellow glow is gonna get mottled with primer spots :-(
