Help bring the Ranger to the funeral

Sad News: My husband, the longtime car enthusiast just passed away yesterday in an accident.

Life is upside-down for me at the moment, but I draw comfort from the good memories of my husband working on the latest auto-project. A calming reminder of a time when most problems could be fixed with a socket wrench!

The only project my husband left behind was his 1970's Ranger. It is in excellent, running condition, but he had just removed all of the seats to install some carpeting before the accident.

I would love to feature this car at his funeral, because restoration was a big part of my husband's life.

If any of you have an expertise in restoring RangerReg's vehicle, (specifically, the re-installation of the seats!) I would greatly appreciate it. The car is located in the Wellington Area (near Paarl), and I would be willing to reimburse you for your time.

I am shocked and very sad to hear this tragic news!

Reg was one of the more regular posters on this forum, who was so determined and motivated to get his Ranger completed. It was always interesting to follow the updates of his progress with the car.

I wish I was closer so that I could assist with your request, Madame, but am sure that other members from this amazing forum will step up to the plate to help you out.

My sincere condolences to go out to his family during this difficult time :cry:

My sincere condolences.
Reg was supposed to meet with me yesterday after his meetings, but I was caught up with a job and wasn't able to get in touch with him. I've only dealt with him via electronic media but he was always friendly and eager to be of assistance. He will be missed on the forum.

Mark

Ps.Nancy I've sent a mail.
