Hey Jacko, I noticed you said you were stuck under the dash. Was this during the Medic's visit? If so, he could have dialled H for you!!

Hurry up and finish that, that, thing will you!

19 November 2017
Not a big week really given we went to Sydney over the weekend.

Rear muffler came off so I can figure out a way to meld the exhaust to it.

Fitted the rear seat in place and placed the carpet over the edge of the frame rail that it sits on. Seat is now resting on the carpet and rail as it should. Will have to do a bit of googling to see how this is held in place as there are no bolts, it just seems to sit there; comfy though.

Fitted the heater box after running caulking around the faces that meet the firewall.




Here is how she now looks




After this shot, I connected up the heater hoses and started cutting the Mondeo fan set to clear the top and bottom radiator hoses. Should be a nice neat fit.

Ash, yep the breather is close but misses and I can take it out if needed. That is how I got the heater box on.

Nuts, so if I rotate the breather 180deg it should fit right?

Cheers
Jacko

25 November 2017

Through the week I grabbed two 2.5 to 2 inch exhaust reducers that I cut down and will weld to the over diff section so that it meets the rear muffler.

Fitted the rear seat and after consulting my interior designer (thanks JBB), I removed the centre seat belt. I tested the position and the belt is only useful if you sit on the hump- not comfortable at all.

H helped me get the carpets (front and rear sections) in position and we used the soldering iron, the crappy one not the good one, to make the holes in the carpet for the lower lap-sash belts. Melting the carpet stops the ends fraying when a bolt or screw is inserted.

With the holes done and the bolts installed the rear carpet was not moving. I then grabbed the floor sill covers/plates and test fitted these. This gave me an idea of where the carpet needed to be trimmed. New sill screws purchased as the original ones were a mix of slotted and other crap screws.




It was then time to angle, shove and lower the rear seat base in place. Oddly, there is nothing fixing the lower half of the seat to the floor rail it sits on, capturing the rear edge of the carpet under it. The arm rest stop it coming out completely but unlike a mustang, there is no tab and screw fixing it I place.

Removed the rear window winders and attached the round plastic protector thingys that I found two of in each container marked ‘front’. With these on, the door card is protected as the winder handle rotates.

As I was happy thus far, it was time to fit the arm rests and plugs. Starting to look like an interior.




Now for the seats; well the seat bases in any case. Got the passenger side one first. Adjusted the front leading edge of the carpet to fit well along the firewall and sat the base in place, making sure the carpet was falling correctly into the shape of the floor. Found where the mounting holes were and made the holes in the carpet. Made sure the underlay was positioned correctly under it and bolted it down (wish it was as easy as it was to just type that).




As the carpet was now effectively ‘captured’, I made the hole for the high beam dimmer switch. And screwed this back onto the firewall.




While on that side, I cut the carpet to reveal the lower accelerator pedal mount and fitted this and the brake pad to the pedal (after I took the above photo).

Back to the passenger side and it was sill plate and kick panel time. Trimmed the carpet front and rear of the door sill and fitted the plate. I had this rechromed a while back as the repro ones are pretty thin. Nice bling.




The kick panel went much better than I was expecting as I found the mounting holes in the adjacent panel pretty easily. Screwed this home and it looks great.




The scribe in the above shot is through into a hole that was in the firewall with a trim screw and collar. Will reinstall this as it will help keep the carpet in place and stop the top part ‘earing’ over. Will hopefully do the drivers side through the week.

Oh, almost forgot about the Mondeo thermos fan shroud. Removed the fan and sat the twin fan shroud in place. Trimmed the top and bottom sections to clear the inlet and return hoses and the two lower mounting tabs and she fits like a glove; love that. Tested the relay using a negative earth signal and that works. Will hold off on fitting this permanently until I have the Fitech able to control the fans.

The "round plastic thingies" that fit under the window handles are called escutcheon plates Laughing

3 December 2017

Cut the carpet for the shifter and should have fitted the floor to shifter boot while the drivers side seat base was not fitted but I didn’t. Had to loosen the seat base to free the carpet to allow access under it to the hole cover bolts and screws. Bit of stuffing around but it is now fitted.




Fitted the drivers side seat base, cut the carpet and installed both door sill panels.




With the carpet now completely captured, I fitted the drivers side kick panel and that screw to hold the passenger side carpet to the firewall. Looks pretty good.




I decided to fit the centre console before the seats as access was a hell of a lot easier. Now the correct order to fit the centre console is as follows:

Remove centre shifter panel

Install the end panel with the Lion logo on it. You need to do this as the four screws attach from below and you will not be able to access them with it sitting on the floor. Don’t fret as you can still access the screws that attach the console to the floor with this panel installed.

Remove the lid as you can’t install the shifter panel with it and the logo panel in place.

Sit the console on the floor and attached it using the three screws.

Fit the shifter panel by sliding it into position, making sure the tangs on the front are under the logo panel. Make sure you slide the rubber boot over the shifter.

Attach the two screws at the rear of the shift panel.

Fit the lid spring steel thingy into the console (the thingy that makes it pop and stay open) and then attach the hinge screws to the lid; adjust to get it to sit correctly.




Now you can install your seats. You know, the seats that have been teasing you for the best part of a year now.

Drivers side first:




And then the passenger side



Now bask in the glory of a glorious interior!

H and I tested the rear seat for, shall we say, ‘comfort and leg room’; there is enough ;-)
