Need more updates!

One question - with the Cadillac seats you get the integrated shoulder harness which seemed perfect until I found out they don't fit well. I don't like the roof mounted shoulder belt and I don't want to have anything hanging down there so I'm looking for a solution to have the shoulder belt either integrate with the seat or maybe have a bracket coming off of the seat to route a floor mounted shoulder harness reel.

How are you going to handle the shoulder belt?

I ended up chopping up the Cadillac seats and using them for the back seats. I wanted something close to buckets in the back since I will have a waterfall center console, but I will have the apholstry guy delete the arm rests. For the front I ended up buying Procar seats. Probably just a lap belt for the fronts.

I feel bad for abondoning this thread. It seems it is either work on the car or keep the thread up to date......first world problems, right!

I got the core support completely shaved of all unnecessary holes, painted and worked on some radiator support brackets.

The rear package shelf would not alow for my planned 6x9's so it was easier to cut out what was there and make some new mounts from scratch.

Nothing like seeing and hearing the motor run at the engine builders. A few too many adult beverages were consumed on this day....

Decided on Dakota Digital Magnum Shooters to eliminate the wires to the doors.

I absolutely love everything you are doing. That engine sounds amazing and I love the front accessory brackets. I'm going to follow your lead with the package shelf speaker mounts.

Keep up the awesome work and keep the updates coming!!
