Calling it a day.. will probably pick back up tomorrow. really only got the steering column brace left to do before I can just start putting it all back together.. but knowing my luck since I said that I'll run into some other issue. Here's what I finished with today. getting the last firewall panel in.

Got the dash fitment finished and the steering brace in today. pretty happy on how it turned out figuring I've be dreading this part of the build since the start. Need to drill holes for the harness on the passenger side and the shifter cable as well as patch up a few more holes I don't need then I'll be finished with the firewall. After I install the seat braces I'll pull everything out and prep it for a coating of some sort. Not sure what yet. Here are some pictures from today.











New upper mount for the passenger side:


Dash to window clearance:

Got the seat brackets in and finished up with the interior mods today.. Then cleaned it out, removed the rust and coated it with a rubberized coating. Should have it running before the end of the month, but with work picking back up we'll see how that works out.

Well got some pictures of the process today. Got a lot got of the engine stuff back together and have started filling her up with fluids. I still need to extend the brake lines from the brake proportioning valve to the master cylinder and finish up the harness. I also need to decide what route im taking with the fuel system and/or tank/pump/sender. I however was very pleased to fine WrenchMonkey's thread on NAXJA forum about fixing the door hinges without welding. I will be doing this over this week. Those damn hinges have had me worried since the start.
