Well everyone has provided a lot of help so far so here's my new question.
Has anyone bought the seat upolstery kit from Mac's in Lockport? I was wondering how well the new covers fit and how accurate the colours were. As well I was looking at the new front seat foams they have, any suggestions? I will be going that way on holidays around Christmas and was going to pick them up at that time.
As for my exhaust I was going to order it from the Birdsnest except for the mufflers. I have the original 352 engine but I will putting a cam in it when I rebuild this winter and I would like a set of mufflers that give a good rumble, look original, but won't cause me to go deaf. I think Flowmasters may be to loud and a friend suggested using Dynomax Turbo mufflers. What do you think?

Thanks Richard for the reference. Steffen I would suggest that you order out your front foams from one of the well known Bird part's houses. However if you re-upholster your rear seats you will undoubtedly find that the rear seat foams are a mess as well and should be replaced. But you will not find any of the Bird part's suppliers that sell rear seat foams aftermarket. I have been fabricating rear seat foams for squarebirds for 15 years and recently have developed patterns for bullet bird foams as well. So if you would like more information and pictures of rear seat foams please do either PM me or direct email me.

I have also for many years been doing steering wheel restorations for many VTCI and squarebird members. I have done steering wheels for many different types of cars, trucks, tractors and boats. This is a great time of year for me to do seat foams and steering wheels because I am in the boat repair business, and as you can guess, boating in Minnesota has kind of wound down for the winter.
Best Birding,
