Thanks,

Not much more visible done yet, but cleaned up the instruments, and wired up the switch panel, also fitted washer pump and tubing
Need to connect the binnacle, but want to fit the dash upper vinyl first.

really wanted to put a few bits on the car today to make it look like I am getting somewhere,

Stuck down the arch covers and added some sound deadening pads

Not sure how much effect they will have but every little helps I hope, then I tackled a job I have been dreading to do, the dash vinyl, all went ok although a little awkward at times, also connected up the binnacle, want to fit headlining next but it needs a good clean.

I then trial fitted the rear seat, after Giving it a good clean.

Not really an update but I took delivery of my new veltone carpet today, pretty impressed with it and looking forward to seeing it in place,

Just a pic whilst it’s in the packaging to show the pile, glad I spent the extra compared to newton carpet.

Have trial fitted the carpet, quality seems pretty good and not much trimming needed, the backing material has left bits all over it but will get a good vacumuming when fitted.

Also fitted the newton rear cards, didn’t have much trouble with them but think they would be a bugger to get out without damaging them, hopefully don’t need to though. Cleaned my rear seat again, and also cleaned my headlining up ready to fit. Then ran out of time for today.

BAS international make them, they are a direct copy of the original veltone carpet used in late 60's mk1 and mk2 cars, The newton carpet is fine quality wise I have it in my mk1, just not correct if you want a car near to factory original spec.
I have used other items of newton trim and been happy with all,

Thanks, I guess the Newton set will be correct for my 78 GT. Always in the look out for recommendations.

Thanks

Is that hole correct for your gear change?

I managed to fit the headlining and rear screen yesterday, kept the period glue stains though, I then spent about 2 hours glueing some of the carpet down and trying to fit the rear quarter windows, gave up on them for now, just can’t get the windows to shut with the new seals. Will try again next week
My subframes also went for powder coating so feel like it’s getting somewhere now

Thanks,

I managed to fit front to rear brake pipe, steering rack, column and steering wheel last weekend

Then this week I got my subframes back from powder coating, so far only part I have entrusted to anyone else, I thought they turned out ok, had zinc coat prior to top black coat so hopefully will be long lasting, the one thread is a little short on rear mounting but luckily just long enough to engage in the nylon of the nut so will be ok, so I have a few bits to bolt on this weekend, luckily all parts are already refurbed so should be a quick process to get it looking like a complete car again.

I now have both frames fitted and bulk of parts fitted, still need to clean underside as it is very dusty, Must be overspray from painting body, fortunately very dry and easy to remove.
Luckily due to new full floor and boot being aligned using my frames they were easy to fit and literally fell into place.
I also used washers to space frame slightly during trail build to allow for the raptor coating.
