Had the car repainted and am now in the process of reassembling. I am surprised by the amount of time it takes to put everything back together...put new SS line and fuel pump for the 2.3.

Always fun working with clean parts and an amazing looking paint job! Look at the finish on the back of that fire wall. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif) Kinda jealous of the floor too.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif) I want one.
Like Mark says enjoy!

Complete agreement on the amount of time to reassemble.

You are approaching the finish line!

Wow, that looks great.
That is a lot of excellent work.

1) What are you going to put on the floorboards for insulation/sound deadening?
2) How did you clean and rust proof the inside of the center tunnel and inside the longs?

Thanks

I see your in CT, so the weather here in the northeast will likely keep you from being able to drive it for several months, so you have some time.

Works looks great, enjoy it!

A little bit more progress = installed the pedal cluster and gear shift.

However, I have this small round flexible rubber bushing left over? near front of photo.... I thought it might be for the accelerator ? But can't seem to figure out where it goes?Attached Image

Wow nice work.


Thanks - But to be truthful - I owe a lot to many folks on this forum without whom I would still be trying to figure out where to start! The advice and help on here is outstanding.

So a small bit of progress - but even after being in my freezer for a week it took some serious effort!
