As of 10-26-03; Runs strong, soon to come; dual exhaust, dual rear antennae, re-paint block (I had painted the whole engine and other under-hood components, but my battery fell off of the [rusted] tray and into the radiator fan... ruined the new paint with batter acid), body/paint work, interior paint (dash and door pillars, etc.), re-upholster seats, new carpet, new sun visors, etc.

Headliner is in great condition.  Needs new tires soon, brakes have been rebuilt, I rebuilt the carb., new water pump, new fuel pump, I restored the gas tank, all lights are in working condition.

I am not at this time looking to sell the car!  I love my Edsel and plan on keeping it a while after I'm done fixing it up.  If you have any restoration tips for me or have any parts give me an email!  TheDoorsRockON@aol.com, I am [and have been] looking for right/rear door glass, any info, let me know!  Thanks all!
