My Car - Snapshot!
Welcome to the SNAPSHOT!!!!! section. Here, I will post new pictures of my car
as I progress
in my Ford Falcon restoration, with big plans for the future..........
I have the week off so the interior
blitz has begun! I'm aiming at getting the car interior done and the car
driveable for the nationals in July.
First pics are the final mock up. Taurus seats with Thunderbird reclining
mechanism (a little research needed but both front seats are power with
lumbar air bag!), factory center console (thanks TJ!), original radio (will
have hide-a-way radio) and old Moon tach.
The manual is a Modern Driveline T-5 with the S-10 tailshaft so you can see
where the shifter comes through floor.
The interior was then completely removed. The seats have been
sent out to Riggs brothers to be recovered (same guys who did the sn65
www.sn65.com) The front and rears will have same pattern/vinyl as
original - so the Taurus seats should blend right into the interior.
I also did a little work to the tilt steering column. Decided to attach the
firewall sheet metal pieces to column for a quick, slick install (have welder
will travel) - white stuff is seam sealer.
Also wanted a quick shot of the center console bracket I fabbed up.
Still lots to do - but the car only gets prettier from here!
