Do you have any more pics of the seatbelt setup? Trying to get ideas on how to add them to my car. Also, for the floor pans, did you use the ones from Absolute Sheet metal? Did you have to modify the tunnel at all.

First off allthe sheet metal was EMS-- nice and thick metal--- made in the USA-- on the large size so you have room to cut and fit up. The seat belts came from a chevy Blazer. all the floor boards and A-pillar pieces were fabed to fit in stock locations. I have a ton if pix of this --- for some reason the sight wiot let me up load pix? Seat belt comes up through the slot in the cover.

Seat belt mount passenger side

Interesting note on the Dynamat Extreme -- need about 12 sq feet to finish the job. Go on Amazon and order what I need--- start instaling a piece of the new Dynamat . notice that it's thinner. quite a bit thinner .050 vers .067. I ended up calling the factory, only to find out that this .050 **** is a China knock off. total bull **** sent it back to Amazon. Hope your right about being quiet, just ordered all new rubber weather striping and rubber bumpers,this is schedled to be painted around the middle of February, cant be done soon enough.

Brake lines are all fabed up, rack and pinion installed A-frames installed. Next is to have the bumper brackets, and some miss pieces powder coated. This is starting to take shape.
