Air box cut up to fit in position quite nicely, just need to mount on rubber isolators and it’s good to go.

Still in need of a drawing for the upper tailgate latch lever though if anyone can assist.

That airbox looks really neat - great fit for the engine bay. i reckon give it a lick of paint (maybe even the same black as the firewall) so it doesn't look "plasticky".

Cheers,
Harv

Trial fir of seat, to work out location of set belt fittings.
No seat belt fitting in the pillar at all, so looks like I’m going * to have to open up The inner panel and put a large nut plate inside!

Hay Spaghettiejet have a look at how I fitted my lower bolt plate and see if you can do the same to your upper mount bolt. You may be able to slide a plate up using the existing holes in the upper B pillar.

Had a look at the plate instal by 64v8 wagon, mine is a bit different as I’m also using the same attachment plate to hold the inertia reel mount as well as the lower seat belt mount, will post photos shortly.
Bit of a stuff around but should suffice.

Accelerator cable and bracket tentatively fitted and achieving full throttle butterfly opening, just need to permanently weld bracket inside etc, one small step moving forward to getting all the little, but time consuming jobs sorted.

Brake pedal completed, now wanting to lower the bucket seats a bit and move apart a little before making console, so quite a bit of thinking and bracket making to decide upon.

Just working on the door card and stainless layout.
Made a rough template card and positioned the “special” stainless trim in a listing to be aesthetically pleasing as well enough clearance for the window winder and door opener.
What do people think? Two tone door trim and matching bucket seats?
Guess where the “special”stainless trims came from?
