Re: Shaved my antenna opening

Howdy from North East Texas

HI, I will be making time for my 69 427 4spcr A/C PS convertible flared roadster HD suspension in riverside gold. This car hasn't seen a paved road since 1986. I have just finished up one project and now I am ready for this one. I just hope it doesn't take two years like the last one, I have a busin...
