Looks great - if you don't mind me asking - how much was the seat belt restoration from Python?

Re: 72 Blazer 2.0

Nice work so far, I'm in for the ride. I was going to tell you to put the spark plug wire brackets in before the motor was mounted, they are a pia to get at with the firewall in the way

X2 on the envy of the shop
