It's been a while, but things have been moving along. Everything under the hood is done, except for replacing an AC hose connector. I had a low fuel pressure issue, but, I moved the wiring circuit to the trunk, took the power directly off the battery, and now the pressures right where it needs to be! It starts right up, idles smooth, and rumbles just bit with the dual exhaust Just haven't had it out for a test ride yet. Wheels are on order,as is another box of Dynamat, and we already have the new molded carpet. Today, I'm resetting the quarter slider windows and maybe putting on some peep mirrors.

Yep, getting close! Anxious to get it on the road. Wheel Vintiques says it'll be 10-12 weeks for the wheels, so my bias ply tires (of unknown decade) will have to do.

Finally took the new carpet out of the box. Looks great! We're going to leave it set for a couple days and then we're going to steam it to make it easier to fit.

We have carpet!! We spent the morning installing the new carpet, with the aid of Kat's Jiffy Steamer. The only troublesome area was the tunnel and that's because of the jute. We're just going to give the carpet time to settle on it's own, then steam it again.

Feels good to get carpet laid down. I bought carpet from O'Rielly's. Doesn't lay very good over the hump, but it covers the floor.

We've never had carpet before, so this is a big deal for us. I wanted to put the Mercedes buckets in, but I have to relocate the tracks, so the truck buckets are going in for now.

After 2 days of cussing, I finally got the horn working on the new steering wheel. The belleville springs supplied with the Ididit horn kit were worthless. I modified the one out of the 49 wheel hanging on the wall. Then I had to make a plastic washer to fit under that. Then I had to add plastic spacers under the horn ring retainer.

The carpet and seats look really nice! And the seat belts are built in the seats as a side benefit.

Thank you! I like the seats, just wish they were about 3" shorter.
