    Thanks for the comments!


    More work on the lid...










    Lid hangs over slightly in the front to serve as our only pull/lift for opening the lid, nice and tidy. It will be held closed using rare earth magnets.







    Video version:



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3cAFzk8Zfc



    Our kick panels for the rear seat also need some support against the inner quarter panel to help hold the arm rest.







    Jake bent up a 1 x 1 angle out of 19 gauge and used the Erco to match the contour of the kick panel. In order to not block off the window mechanism access panel, we'll bolt it to that panel.. As we have yet to install all of our interior/carpet/upholstery, we made the support adjustable so we can match the kick panel height at installation.. Video version:



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wicUAwkqvAI







    More details on the console, we had hemmed all the edges to help protect the upholstery when it gets wrapped, but the tunnel cutout at the rear still needed an "added" hem. Then our hem is tacked in place, edges adjusted with a drum sander, and the two edges fusion welded together using the TIG.











    ....and sanded smooth..







    Next, layout and folding the insert for the console. Some parts needed to fill in voids will be added later..
















    Test fit....

    That is looking great! This really makes me want to build a steel console for my 40 now.

    Finishing up our floor weldments so we can visit the local Line-x for "undercoating" this coming week.. Our bucket seats have one bolt that went through the floor, and we wanted to eliminate the need for two people to install/remove the hardware.. We came up with a plate fitted to the floor pan channel that we welded a hex nut onto. This plate will allow us to plug weld to the floor...
















    The rear quarter also has some bolting pads where the side ears to the rear bumper is bolted through. We needed to make stiffener plates to strengthen this area.





    We made use of some tubing in the scrap pile to make a punch and anvil... Everything's a tool...





    Alignment marks in the centers of the tubes..

















    Ready for Line-x

    Awesome as always. I'm hoping to make a metal cup holder for Rita to blend in with everything. Watching you helps!

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    Thank you Mr Ross sir.
    You are a scholar and a gentleman.

    As for Uncle Bob and Roger...you only pick on me 'cos I'm a poor defenceless little fella.

    If I was a big fella you wouldn't pick on me like that.

    I don't think I'd have room enough to hide all the extras on those cup holders...


    Doesn't look like we did much this weekend, but we got the wheel wells, floor pans, and cross members scuffed up this weekend. Then applied two coats of SPI epoxy primer to address the bare spots, so now we're ready for Line-X..

    That looks so nice! Will the people applying the line-x have to scuff it again, or does the SPI have a large window that you can top coat it?
