    thanks. is there another kind of beer?LOL. the arm healed great. no scaring to speak of. if any of you ever get a bad burn, silver sulfadiazine is the bomb ! its by prescription only, so ask your doc for it;)

    ouch is an understatement . most painful thing ive ever been through. honestly felt like somebody poured gas on me and struck a match! showered my whole left side, but the arm got the worst of it. i ran out of the garage and stood in the lawn sprinkler and all that would come out of my mouth was call somebody, over and over. my wife called somebody,911 ! got my first ambulance ride at 46:whine: it all turned out ok though. bad thing was after all that time building the car , i finally cranked it for the first time and that happened. i was on garage restriction for 4 weeks:(

    yes sir......at least they were sold to me as leather seats. they look and feel like leather. i do know they came out of a 95 Z28, because the build tags are still on them.

    if you want to get a look at the seats, you can go to the " newschool72 walk around vid" on this same forum. it shows the back seats as well.

    oh, by the way, i took her out for a 30 mile drive today. really happy with it so far. drove, turned, and braked great. i didnt flog on the throttle hard, because i had my son and 5 yr old girl in an untested car, but overall , happy. car even went straight letting go of the wheel. pretty impressive sense i just eyeball the alinment . i cant wait to open her up after things get broke in!;)
