|Looking ok but still plenty of work to do here|
I put the rear seat side panels back in - it's a shame I didn't manage to get these panels painted at the same time as the rest of the maroon trim, but I just ran out of time. These are awkward objects to store, so it made sense to put back the three screws per side that hold them to the chassis.
|Rear seat and seat back went in next|
I didn't want my seats to scratch the brand new primer on the floor, so I cut some strips out of the old carpet and fitted them onto the seat tracks.
Then I bolted the front seats back into the car and added the steering wheel.
A multitude of parts were stashed in the trunk - mostly the big stuff I took off the car (dash pad, grille, export brace) and stuff I won't be needing again for ages like my Edelbrock Performer 289 intake manifold.
So now it's time to put the doors back on. I started by re-attaching the hinges to the A-pillars, using the newly painted and plated hardware. So far, so good....
