no clue on VicAuto.

just kidding around about Jim's spider. Hell I wouldnt even know what to do with one as nice as his! I mean, it is seriously nice, but I was kidding around. Have fun. Also seriously...if max safety is a thing, i'd say probably ought to not drive the Fiat anyway. ultimately, retrofit of early bumpers isn't rocket science & no bumpers or abarth type bumper blocks can both look nice.

on the gauges, I'm assuming you've checked that a ground somewhere in the gauging hasn't been lost? (not that it would impact the speedo)

I'm sure AR would accept AMEX gift cards - they're as good as AMEX right?

I am thinking, tune up next, but I still want to work on getting the Tach, Speedo and gas gauge working.

--Chris, thank you for the very nice compliment on the '72. I'm just "caretaker" on that one now! The ol' girl lives a charmed life!

--Blimp, I get it on the side marker delete. Here's another example of side marker delete, but I will eventually add the Euro front markers for safety considerations. (side view for lane change). Also, I tend to drive this one like I stole it....
