um not entirely sure yet on that. kinda playing that by ear because i dont know whats going to fit and whats not going to fit yet. id like to keep the rear seats and plastics. im assuming im gioing to have to trim some of the plastics to make room for the tubs and if the tubs will be seen ill probably carpet them up. going to deleate the rear belts (cant fit a car seat in an fbody anyway, not that it matters now but prob will in future). so ill have to figure out a decently clean way to cover the hole in the plastic where the belt goes though. thats all i got for interior plans for now. make it look as factory as possible really is the goal..

I just wondered. Phil did a minitub in his 86 TA and the rear plastics didn't fit so he had to modify and fiberglass them to cover the tubs

guess the pecan pie sucked... progress for today.







got most of the right side welded in. have the bottoms of the front and back to weld in yet and some stock brackets to weld back in, including the seat brackets. then right side will be done. made a few mistakes with my cuts but nothing some extra metal and more welding cant fix. first time ever doing tubs so im happy with the progress so far.

lol most pics at this point will be boring, prob wont post to many of the other side getting done cause it will be alot of the same. wheels should be in any day hopefully. they said 3 weeks when i ordered them at that was about 3 weeks ago... if i dont get them by thursday im gonna call them and see whats up. as long as they come out perfect they can take all the time they need. just bought all the supplies i need for the job minus sealer, base coat, and clear... wallets a little lighter this week. almost 8 years into the body shop buissness and it still amazes me when peoples eyes pop out when we tell them what a paint job costs... lol

hey thanks man, appreciate that. yea im pretty excited and also little nervous to hope it all turns out how i want it to.. ya know. iv waited a while to do the exterior of the car and decided to go as far all out as the budget would allow seeing i may not get another chance to do something like this for a while.
