01-19-2020 09:25 PM Front seat rail mounts 1
I started making the seat mounts for the front seats. I mocked up the basic position with scrap wood to establish the height and location, then started to make the front mounts with metal. Ultimately I'll drill holes and use nutserts for easy bolting down of the seat rails. Fortunately, I was able to make a duplicate for the passenger side with very little alteration. I guess I put the two halves of the floor in relatively well, ha ha. I also had to add extra work and drill some holes in there for visual appeal, so I boxed the one area where the seat will be bolted to restore some strength to the part. Next will be to make the rear mounts.

01-05-2020 08:26 PM speedometer rebuild 1
I took the speedometer apart and repainted the inside reflective area to make the light color red. Not a fan of the old light green color. I'll eventually send my speedometer out for a mechanical rebuild to have new guts installed. They can set it up for a digital signal for my T56, and rebuild as needed the temp and fuel gauge, too. I will want the needles painted white to match the other gauges I plan to get. It's all about keeping them consistent in detail for a cohesive look.

01-05-2020 08:23 PM fuel tank flip cap filler neck 2
I'm happy with the progress on the filler neck. I made an aluminum ring for inside the tank to help seal the filler neck to the tank. I also added an anti slosh valve in my filler neck hose so it is directional now. I'll need to make some spacers to adjust the final height of the flip top cap, and will do that later once I final fit the trunk lid. I may still make a catch tray for spilled fuel. TBD on that.

01-05-2020 08:22 PM interior panel fabrication 4
More updates from this weekend. Just a few little things as I'm still waiting for my seats to arrive, so I worked on covering my remainder interior panels, worked on making my fuel filler neck, and repainted the back light reflector areas on my speedometer to red. The interior panels came out OK, and the package shelf two piece was not as good as I had hoped. At first it laid down OK, but must have shriveled up when drying as the gap got larger . It's still usable, though.
