    Still inching my way toward starting the engine I decided to find a place for a battery. I dragged out the brake that I made, it bolts to my steel workbench. I bent up some stainless and made a cover. I ordered some welding cable to make up the leads.

    I scored these beautiful seats on craigslist for a hundred bucks! They are out of a 2019 VW Golf with 1k miles. They have manual lumbar and height adjust, I just had to figure out the recline wiring. Working on mounting them today.

    VW makes great seats. The two I had in my '27 were from an '86 GTI, with electrics adapted from two '92 Ford Tempos.

    I wasn't looking for VW seats but I wanted something fairly new and tan. I have always liked VW seats though so I was very excited to find these.

    Nice work on the battery box and nice score on the seats! That is a killer deal!

    Times 3, great battery box setup and seats. Awesome metal break you made up. I like that a lot.

    That looks like a great spot for the battery, A little work to get at it but you don't need a floor jack like mine. The seats are a great find too.

    Actually got it running yesterday! Not without some glitches of coarse. I reversed the plugs on the PCM so it would blow a fuse every time I hooked up power to it. After I figured that one out it would try to start not not quite, it set a couple TAC and APP codes which is the drive by wire stuff. I pulled all that out and cleaned the connectors and it started. Put it into reverse and drive and it wanted to go so I'm hopeful the trans will work OK. I feel like it runs a little ruff, checked the compression and spark and that seemed ok. May have to do more testing.

    The first startup is always one of those milestones that you'll never forget. Usually guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

    Killer rig; every bit as nice as going to the dealer and buying a new truck but 10 times as cool.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. I've been camping on the coast the last few days, kind of anxious to do some fine tuning on it. I'm wondering if my fuel pressure is a little to low. I got about 50-53 with the vacuum disconnected from the regulator on the fuel rail. I was reading 58 is normal.

    I'm looking forward to more videos! My 5.3 is probably older with more miles but I needed intake gaskets right away. A proper tune fixed the rest of it.
