Nice car Alan!

Could you please explain how you adapted or modified the rear shaft of the t56 to get it in your car? Did the t56 have that rubber connection in the rear of it?

My question was more in regards to adapting a tailshaft because I believe that the t56 doesn't have a slip yoke at least the one I have seen on ve commodores.

You are correct, Mal Woods sells a kit with a new shaft, tailhousing yoke etc etc for,....$1800..
Ive been looking through an old ( 2011) Car craft where they modified a 2011 Camaro to a 9" diff centre, they used an adaptor plate to a big CV then into the Camaro driveshaft,...wondering if that will work on the Camaro

It all started out so simple,......
Decided to remove old carpet as it was...well stuffed.,..remove n tweak Mazda MPS3 seats,..tweak reel belt mounts.
Started with removal of console, removed seats & reel belts ....
Rip out old carpet, while I was at it decided to "dynamat" the floor, Then refit underlay, biggest bugger of a job was making the carpet fit, as Ive fitted VA AC I had to trim the carpet to get up on tramsmission tunnel as far as possible but alloow for VA AC unit...then cutouts for Gas pedal, steering column, dipper switch, n trim around kickpanels,
the left kickpanel was the a pain because Dipper switch n footbake are in the road.. great carpet but needed trimming around all the edges basically
The the real bugger of a job dragging the carpet in n back out to mark out bolt holes for belts seats n console.
Tear down seats n mounts, make new spacers for mounts so I can have more rearward seat travel.
then refit seats n belts n console..
Finally finished worth it but a bugger of a job

Interior looks good mate. Seats suit it. I reckon it's hard to find front seats that suit these cars & aren't to tall.
Must've been thirsty work! The stubby holder is empty

Yeah it was in a mates shed thank God he has a big Evap unit, only felt like 38....
I had a pair of Recaros but the bolsters hit the console , I have a Mazda6 Superdeluxe hatch n the seats in it looked perfect but were a little too wide, I found a pair of Mazda 3MPS seats that (in my eyes) without the headrests look near perfect, they're a tight fit width wise.
To fit them youv'e got to remove the Mazda mounts from the bottom of the tracks by drilling out 2 rivetts at each end of the tracks, this gives you a flat track to work with after some of the plastic trim and Mazda inner seat belt ends are removed. The Mazda tracks are approximately 2" wider than the Camaro mount holes. Luckily the Camaro seat pan is nice n flat .
To mate the Mazda rails to the Camaro seat pan we made 2 lateral rails from 6mm x 32mm flat just long enough to span the width of the Mazda tracks, with a 45 degree bevel on each end, this will help with clearance against the tunnel n the Sills. The sill side of the seat pan mounts to the sills with a nice large diameter 90 degree roll , this needs to be tapped into a tighter roll with a ball pien hammer to give more clearance.
The lateral adapters then need to have a 5/16th thread tapped into it for a buttonhead HT capscrews to be bolted inside the ends of the tracks a Buttonhead cap screw fits into the track nicely & allows seat travel in the tracks ( pic above ), the later rails need to be spaced with 10mm thick spacers between the tracks so buttonhead capscrews need to be a minimum of 16mm long, to allow clearance against both floor & the bottom of the seat pan to clear the floor mounts to get full seat travel backwards. If your really tall then you might get away with 5 to 7mm spacers.
The right hand seat originally being the Mazda drivers seat has a small height adjustment lever, but because of the seat back recline/tilt lever being on the outside the passengers seat becomes the drivers seat.
These seats look to be 2009/2012 Mazda 3 models , other year models may differ.
I hope that helps anyone thinking about fitting late Mazda buckets . PM me if you need more info.
Al

Nice pics Alan. You're lucky you have some great places to take photos that don't have a million people around them like in the city. The seats look good too. Like Nathan said, just the right height.

Thanks Jason,
Sometimes I wish I was in the city cause there are a lot of places Id love to shoot that we dont have here...the grass is always greener....

Strange how such a neat looking car has so little headroom.
Think the floors need to be another 2" lower
How all the garble about the seats made some sence if anyones interested.
