Sunday Sunday Sunday! Started the day out working on glass, quarter windows are in. Loud pedal is back together and in, as is the throttle cable. Pulled the line loc off to seal and tighten the fittings, had to tweak one brake line after I decided to change the direction of the fitting for the brake pressure gauge. Did the final install of the front brake brackets and calipers.

Probably won't get too many chances to work on it this week but I'm getting some parts and pieces ready for the upcoming weekend. #1 was to get the carpet out so it will relax to the floor a bit.

Couple more things done... put the hatch rubber on and started working on a plate for the firewall switch panel. Autumn came down after school and we worked on seat bracket location, well it looks like a smaller seat would be better for us, the location is so far forward that this Kirkey seat will be very close to the roll bar on one side and the shifter on the other. This seat is the 17" wide version so I ordered a 15" wide one, it should be here Thursday. I also got all the front fender bolts and spring nuts ready also made sure the threads were clean. Possibly the best thing I've done is order some new fasteners, cheap and nice to have new clean coated bolts, I'll post a photo of a place to get them.

Nick, I like that stainless hardware, very sharp! I can't pull out ALL the stops on this one, makes it too hard to top it on the next build.
