Been slowly working at some not-so-glamorous stuff.
Finally got 2 seats and 2 seat covers and the proper floor mounts. Got the mounts drilled and bolted up to the seats at a good angle, then the mounts bolted to the floor. Doing that required a bit of thinking, and I ended up drilling access holes in the seats so I could get a socket on the floor bolts.
I probably have about 25 hours labor in mounting seats, between the hibacks and now these.
Here’s a pic of the bare Kirkey 17″ wide 55V loback seat, with my seat heaters taped in place. On the bottom pan, you can see the 4 holes I drilled to be able to access the floor bolts for mounting.
With the seats finally installed. Looks pretty good, but I’m still not 100% crazy about em.
They are pretty comfy, and I like the way the roll bars really stand out now. Before, they were totally hidden behind the seats.
Got my Mike Everson / ReplicaParts roll bar trim rings installed. These are made just for the thicker Breeze bars and are beautiful pieces. Made me nervous about pre-drilling holes in the painted body, tho…
Spent more time trimming and taping down some loose carpet, adjusting the passenger shoulder belts, finish torquing the mounting bolts for the roll bars. The end of the angle bar is very close to the inside of the body, so a thru bolt wouldnt work. Had to drill and tap thru one side of the bar, then used a 3/8 gr8 bolt to secure it. It isnt going anywhere.
More detail work tomorrow…
Thanks for following.
