Nah mate, only a minor alteration. The back wall was built 4 inches into the cabin and stops the seats from reclining, that reduced my leg room of course.
Now i'm not tall but an extra 4"s in a 32 coupe goes a long way!!
I've cut the top half and will lean it back to level with the base of the rear window.

Ive fitted an amp and sub in the boot and a new head unit and speakers are getting fitted into the rear wall. Once its trimmed it wont look much different from before.

Yes Anchor, there is a sense of DeJa-Vu for me too (from last time i rebuild the engine).

Heres todays effort, stopping for tucker and then back into it later. Pulling sh#t out is the easy bit !!!

Just getting a couple of hours here & there, removing bits, cutting off the suspension brackets etc etc.
Pretty clean and totally rust free underneath.

Didnt get much done on the Ranga today....too many interruptions.
Did pick up the rod from the trimmers though, had the back wall all tidied up and speakers fitted. Really happy with the job. Off to the Geelong Ford Day tomorrow.

Nah Allan, it wouldn't fit. You need something from a 3rd gen Nova. 68 onwards.

Those seats in the hot rod look very familiar.

Are they from a 94 Camaro?

Very tidy trim job.
