With the modified legs all the legs of the driver's seat rest on the floor. It will bolt up fine.

The passenger side was a mess. The car these came out of must have had a mountain range for a floor on the passenger's side. I shortened one leg back on 210 or 211. That was the right rear. Both left legs needed to be lengthened. I measured, cut, and welded. Ended up being close. A little more cutting, fabricating, and welding and the seats are level. I still need to mark and drill the holes on the passenger side.

I also worry that the seats are too low. Maybe the top needs chopped. Thought about, but not for long.

I started modifying the seats way back on entries 210 and 211. Decided that I would work on them again.

The left front mount of the driver's seat had a large gap to the floor. Instead of piling up washers, I decided to extend the leg.

After a lot of measuring and cutting, the lengthened leg welded up.

I also put a 1/8" thick spacer on the right rear leg of the driver's seat.

09-18-2010 11:24 PM Wiring the Passenger Door
I have to look at the wire loom episode not as a failure. I identified one way which would not work for passing the wires to the door.

I did get the relays for the passenger door window wired up. There are five relays because there will be a switch on the dash so the driver can roll the passenger door window up and down. It will override the door switch.

The door switch holes were drilled and the switch was mounted. The five relays were mounted low in the door. A Weatherpack was installed between the relays and the motor.

Still to do. Power window circuit power wire needs to be attached to the first relay. The two wires from the dash switch needs to be connected to the relays. A ground stud needs to be attached to the inside of the door.

09-18-2010 11:11 PM All Dressed Up With No Where To Go
Back from China and back to work.

I made an attempt to put the braided stainless steel wire looms on the door. I had to make a support to make it so the nut would tighten. After I got it all assembled, the door went back on the car. It was then I found out this wouldn't work. The door on the 41 closes in instead of around. Closing the door ended up crushing the hose. I would have had to push the hose every time I closed the door and even then it would not have lasted long.

I will have to figure a better way to pass the wires to the door. In the meantime, I have two new holes to fill.

09-01-2010 10:22 PM License Plate French
Finished the grinding tonight. There are no visible holes. I may do a dye pen test to verify it is completely welded.

Used a license plate to mark the bottom two holes. Drilled them. Test fit the bolt/lights. No photo, but all the bullet connectors are on the bolt/lights. Still have to wire the trunk lid.
