The fillers were welded in and then the welds were ground down.

The seats were put back in. The reinforcing plates and seat belts will go in next.

It is hard to believe it has been two months since I worked on the car. Travel for work and the heat have been a hindrance.

The floor needs reinforcement plates under the seat mounts next to the drive shaft tunnel. The beads rolled into the floor would make it difficult.

Hammering them out was out of the question. The floor is already stretched a bit from weight over time.

The beads were cut out. Filler pieces were cut to fit.

Unless I wanted to modify the seat even more, the catch would have to extend beyond the edge of the seat riser on the floor. I laid out a couple of brackets, cut them out and formed them. The brackets and catch were tacked in in case they need to be moved later. So far so good.

Still had the middle two braces to finish. Thought about cutting and pasting the whole thing. Then decided one cut, some bending, and a few short pieces of rod would do the trick.

I found a place on line that sells repops of the mid-60's/early 70's seat retainers. Started bending seat rod to make it work.

05-28-2011 08:15 PM Power Seat Wiring
Bad weather. Long days at work.

On the good side, our daughter graduated last weekend. No work on the car, but seeing her graduate was much better than hot rodding.

Back at it today. Got the wiring done for the power seats. Had to install Packard ends on the seat motors.

Added some wire and Packard ends to the harness and this wiring is done. Only have a few more circuits to finish.
