Making a roll cage that doubles as an exhaust would be the most boso thing ever

Not much progress, but hey, getting somewhere!!

On the weekend, I started to pull the last piece of the car I have never touched yet, and that was the dash. What an ordeal... Ton of rusty bolts, broke a screwdriver on one of them... and had to pull the windshield because two bolts are hidden underneath the window seal. I have realized how heavy this dash actually is, and I am now looking into a dash cover to use as a replacement. I have found a cover at dashtop.com; I am waiting for a reply before pulling the trigger on one of those (funny, I just received a reply while writing this post out. I'll probably end up buying one). I plan to remove all of the framework behind the dash and just run a simple bar across the cage a pillar bars to mount the steering column to instead.

The war zone:



The trunk still needs one more coat of paint and I can start to put stuff back in.



Bah, stupid heavy piece of junk!



The car is settling into it's temporary home for the next few months.



Earlier in the thread, I posted a few pics of some taillights I cleaned up. Well, my friend ended up giving me a complete set of taillights recently, these with good chrome trim (compared to my originals which are faded to hell and back). He mentioned that these are the original taillights from the car Smitty now owns... I don't know if that is true or not, but after a ton of wetsanding, they came up okay. The one has a crack in the lense, but that is the least of my worries right now. Looks good!

Might have to switch gears on that dashboard idea after my first attempt at a center console/switch panel was a flop yesterday. Looking into flocking and also making a new center console that mimics the stock one out of balsa wood... we'll see next week what I can get my hands on for materials.

Worked on the seat mount today. With the help of my Dad, we got it all planned out and executed. I'll have to do the passenger side myself next week sometime.

My seat sees the light of day again outside! Nice and minty. Had to dig up my side mounts and sliders I had in my parts stash. It's a bit of a heavy seat for a fiberglass bucket, but is it ever sturdy! Overbuilt... I like!



Settled on a simple, yet beefy solution to mount the seat sliders to. Two bars, running from rocker to tunnel. Amazing how much strength these bars will provide the chassis... the whole tunnel flexes when I jammed in the bars before they were fit to its exact spot. I guess in a stock 2002, it relies heavily on the seats to help give it some rigidity.



Second bar set in with support plates.



Bolted on the sliders and set the seat on to see placement... looking good!



A few more tacks here and there and for the first time I could actually sit in the car PROPERLY! What a feeling! (No seats were present when I got the car many moons ago) I moved it forward a hair when sitting in it, and I think the position is pretty good... maybe a bit tall, but that is easy to correct with the side mounts. Worst case, I'll ditch the lower seat cushion...



All finished up with a light squirt of paint just to seal it for now. Will do a second coat in the near future.



More progress next week! Until then... I'll be at Mosport. Again
