I thought I had fixed all of the trunk floor. After I got the battery box installed I found a couple of pin holes in the area between the reinforcing channels. I knew the area was pitted, just didn't know it was that bad.

The area to remove was drawn out and cut. A panel was made and trimmed to fit. It is about 3/4 welded in. Tin Star time. Didn't get all the welding done before it was time to go eat tacos!

Once I was satisfied the seat bottom was properly positioned, the catches were finish welded. Today was not good looking weld day!

The reinforcing plate for the passenger side shoulder belt was installed. All anchor points for the front belts are now installed.

Both lower B pillar mounts have been installed.

The other back seat bottom catch was tacked in place. Both of them are now installed. They are tacked in just in case they need to be moved later.

My wife came out and sat in the passenger seat so I could locate the upper B pillar mount location for the shoulder belt. Fortunately, the best location is at the same height as the driver side. Next time I get to work on it I will modify the mount/reinforcing plate and get it installed.

Cold front came through. Temps are down about 20 degrees from last week. What a relief.

The B pillar mount/reinforcing plate was modified to fit the B pillar. The original is in the middle of the first photo. The modified version is on the left. On the right is the floor reinforcing plate. The second photo shows the plate installed. The welding could have looked better, but it has good penetration.

The final photo shows both of the reinforcing plates for the seat belts next to the hump have been rosette welded in and the mounts bolted down.

The driver's seat went back in and the seat belt set was mocked up.

The latch belt will be mounted to the floor with an "L" bracket from the Juliano's kit. Once the proper location was established, three holes were drilled; one for the bolt to hold the "L" bracket down and two for the rosettes which will hold the reinforcing plate to the floor. After the photo was taken, the reinforcing plate was installed. The belt will attach to the "L" bracket with a bolt.

The retractor assembly will attach to the inner quarter panel at the bottom of the "B" pillar. The reinforcing plate had to be modified to fit. It will be attached with a rosette through the small hole in the inner quarter. The "L" bracket will be welded to the floor and the inner quarter.

After the two lower attachments were welded in place, my wife helped me locate the upper mount for the shoulder belt portion of the three point belt assembly. Time was up before I could get the reinforcing plate for it modified and welded in. Cleaned up the garage and then me. Off for tacos at Tin Star!

Now that I have figured out how to do the driver's side, the passenger side should be a snap. After I reinforce the floor for the seat mounts and put the patch panel in the trunk floor, the car should be ready to go on the rotisserie for final floor prep and frame crossmember building.
