When we last had this on the road, it handled so bad that I woould not let the wife even try to drive it. With the MII, I'm sure it will handle tons better even w/o power steering.

Yes Bruce, the difference will be like night and day. I think you and the wife will be more than pleased with the improvement. The project is looking good.

She's got to be pleased with it more than me as she'll be driving it mostly.

That pics from last June. It went back up on stands for some underneath work and is still there. I'll probably get her off stands again this coming week to see how she looks on her regular shoes.
