I have not looked at the interior since I received the replacement. When I brought the interior out I noticed that it was also pulling away in certain areas, mostly in the areas that have the air vents. I went to my local upholster to see if he could get it fixed or replace the material but not one of them would take it on. They could not guaranty it would hold, so I called Factory Five and there is another recall. So I am waiting for a new set. I place it in the car so I could get some measurements. Dash pod along with the steering column cut out and gauges installed.

I have finished the roll bar cover. What a pain, after getting it fiber glassed in its new position I removed to finish. I glassed the back side and a thin coat on the front to hide the lines and get it smooth. This will be covered with a head liner that is foamed back so all the imperfections were not filled. Its primed and ready to be installed.

I modified the halo cover that I purchased this thing just would not fit. So I cut it up and fiber glassed it back together, now it fits like it should. Once this dries then I will take it back out and glass the back side and add some more filler to the front so that it will reach the windshield. Vidal had done this also and once you have it up on the roof it just did not look right. This will be covered with a this layer of foam so it will not have to be perfect.

Pass side seat tracks installed. I had to make another set of brackets from 3" angle iron. These I also just used one hole the position is very comfortable. The seat tracks were painted black to keep them the same as the drivers. L shaped brackets were sprayed with Ez liner to protect them and give them a rubber finish. After sitting in the passenger seat really noticed that my used E brake handle was in very bad shape, one more thing to order.

After getting the instructions to install the Drivers seat it was a simple task to complete. I built my own seat bracket from 3" angle iron. I drilled the one hole for the seat, I didn't like the idea of the seat being able to adjust up and down. At the angle I have the seat it gives it a comfortable feel. When I was done trimming the brackets I used EZliner to cover them to give it a rubber finish.
