Thanks Justin. Yeah, nearly there, but there's always something that gets in the way of just getting it done. I just have to finish laying the carpet, install front seats and console, then the dash, then tidy up all of the nick nacks and it's good to go. You would think I'd be gagging to finish it, which I am, but I'm kind of loving being in the "build" phase if that makes sense.

Anyway, school formals start for my son and his sister school to his in April, so that's my deadline.

Thanks for checking in.

Darren

Iíd finish the dash and everything else before I fit the seat. I know itís awesome to have the seats in but there ainít much room to do anything else once theyíre in.

Thanks Ken and I think you're right. I've been under the dash before with the seats in and it wasn't a whole lo of fun. I had planned on test fitting the front seats first and cutting the holes in the carpet, then removing them to get the dash in and all of the wiring buttoned up, then back in with the seats.

Yeah sweet. I use a soldering iron to melt the seat holes. Always make the holes bigger than you think you need .

Its' done - for now

Haven't updated for a while, but after 3 years and 4 months, the car is back on the road. Very happy at the moment with how the car looks, drives, handles etc. Lots of little bits and pieces to address, but at least I can now drive it to places to get things done, rather than having to put it on a trailer each time.

First catch up with my car club is at Lakeside raceway here in Brissy in a few weeks and I can't wait.

Thanks for checking in.

Thanks Mark. The club is called True Streeters (lame huh) but the club seems to have a bunch of good folks involved and has lots of club events including cruise sessions on our local tracks etc. Can't wait to get out and into it.
