I am nearing the finish line for the restoration of this 1883 Spirit I bought from a junk yard.

Wow! that Spirit looks great. You did a wonderful job on the restoration. Did you reuse the original bucket seat hinge covers? My son's SX/4 black covers are in bad shape and I'm looking for replacements.

Those look like Ford Ranger wheels from the early to mid 90s.

Very cool restoration. I've always loved that paint scheme on the Spirits!
