I haven't noticed yet George and didn't ask for anything specific. I will have a look next time I am there as I have not installed the back seat belts yet. I know on Steve's car he has his through the slit in the bottom section as you described.

cage's seat has those seat belt holes as it was a stock seat. George, your seat will also have them. They are a tight fit to get them through.

Sorry to hijack cage..

Hey kerry. Nope mine definitely doesnt.. my car was a non fold down assembly (now fold down) so not sure if that makes a difference. Not sure if they are from a 67 (though it did match the trim as per marti report). I think you mentioned before they all fit the same.

Ill have the trimmer do it with the holes.

Hi Kerry, I noticed on Steve's car that the rear lower trim panels have a circular cut out on them towards the floor where the back seat belts mount on each side. Mine do not have these. What is the best method to mount the belts? I can obviously take the lower panels off but when I put them back on do you think they will foul on the belt. In other words will I need to modify the lower trims to suit and cut out a section?

With the back seat out, you should be able to see the threaded hole on each side under that trim. If there is enough room to get a bolt in there, that will allow the belt to come out OK.

So, no, I do not think they will need modifying.

Seat belts done. Took all f'n day. Tip for beginners, do this before you do the interior as you will have to take it all apart again to reach the side mounting points. What a bitch.

Thanks for taking my phone calls too Kerry, appreciate the help.

Got a bit done today, started to work on the centre console. Due to the Quickshifter the console just won't work so need to start to mock up the new version.

Have to do a bit more work on the positioning of the hand brake as it is way to low but this will be the thereabouts position.



Then it was time to get the height right so that I don't foul on the mechanism. This is about right but is still too high. I have about 1cm more I can come down which I will need to do as the needle will be to low in this centre part of the console position



You can see in this pic how low the handbrake is in its original position.



Mock up of the front dials, not is the right spot as they are bit low but you get the picture. Also dialing in the hole needed for the Quickshifter mechanism not to foul.



Top shifter cover in place for a little look. Pretty happy with this so far. Now to join the dots, do a CAD drawing and cut it out on the CNC machine, route the holes needed and bend into shape (after sorting out the handbrake height of course)

Yes mate, this is the start of the modified version. The outside of the console doesn't need much work at all, it is the inside piece that needs all the modification to make it work.

Hats off to you chopping up a $1000 console.
Looks like it will work out very well. Keep the good work up. I want to see this car on the road soon.


I will someday think of something clever to say.
