    I ordered the Flip today. It's finally getting warm enough to work in my garage! Thanks by the way to Jekbrown ;).

    This project is going to be silmultaneous with fixing my gas tank sender, and installing Kert's Inboarding kit.

    Are there any other projects, maintenance, improvements you would all suggest while I'm working in the area?

    I'm considering flipping the 56's but I need to search some more to find out if my driveshaft will need to be replaced.

    All suggestions are welcome, I'd hate to get it all buttoned up to find out I shoulda....

    Yeah, I'll definitely use up the rest of my POR 15. I didn't figure the shaft would work, but I wasn't going to discount it until I heard otherwise.

    Thanks guys.

    Any other ideas?
