09-24-2011 05:46 PM Kick Panel Retainer
About six years ago, I replaced the bottom half of the toe board on the passenger's side. In doing so, I had to remove the kick panel retainer.

Finding it and installing it was on my to-do list for today. I found it. It wasn't in as good a shape as I remembered. About three inches were missing including one of the tabs. I thought about fixing it, but decided to build a new one.

After today's work, it is time to take it all apart and put it on the rotisserie.

09-24-2011 05:39 PM Seat Belt Mount & Spare Tire Mount
Put the back seat in. Sat in it and located the retractor. Cleaned two spots on the underside of the package shelf and drilled the holes. Done! All the seat belt mounts are in the car.

Put in the mini-spare and determined the location for the mount. Got it welded in.

I need to find a hot rod friendly scissors jack from a late car that will fit in the spare tire. (just in case)

09-19-2011 09:46 PM Front Seat Reinforcement
The bucket seat mounts needed reinforcement on the inboard side. Carbon steel strips of 10 ga., 3" wide by about 17" long were obtained. Starting with the passenger side, one end of the reinforcement was formed to fit into the recess in the floor at the front floor brace. Nuts were welded to the reinforcement.

The floor had the rust and paint removed. Weld through primer was applied to the floor and reinforcement.

Ran out of time before I got a chance to put in the rosettes. It's all set to weld in the next time. Then the driver side.

09-18-2011 03:22 PM Trunk Floor and Rear Window
Finished the patch in the trunk floor. While I was back there with the torch, I located and filled some pin holes around the trunk floor extension I installed back in November (see entry #341).

The black piece is the spare tire hold down bracket. It will be located and welded in soon.

The rear window glass was removed. Got it out with no chips or breaks just in case it will clean up. These things are expensive.

With the glass out, the mounts for the rear seat belt shoulder harnesses can be installed.

Just a few more items and the body can go on the rotisserie.
