So I have worked on the car. I have mover the boost gauge with a bracket that I built.
Image
Image
Image

I have also made some more of my brackets that change the bolt spacing on the license plates from JDM to USDM. That way you can have a license plate frames and dont have to drill holes in you USDM plate.
I didnt take a photo with the plate on. I wil have to do that.
Image

I also cut the seat slider apart and made it sit about 3\4 of an inch lower. I made all new mounting tabs and welded on a new rear mounting plate. I made the nuts M6 so they match what the car has factory. If any guys with JDM cars wants a pair let me know. I have made a set for kgc10 in the past.
Image
Image

Got some more stuff lined up.

congrats DeRuX. if you need any additional advice just PM me :)

Those number plate brackets are a nice idea. I plan to change my front plate to a smaller NZ-legal motorcycle sized one, and that looks like a good way to do it.

I'd like a pair if you make more.

Here is a pic of how the plate mounts with the brackets. It is cool cause you can run a JDM plate under it and then at the show remove your plate so the japan one shows.

Also today my DR house warming present came.

got to get it open and see all the goodies...

Because I am tall and want to sit comfy in the car. I went back to my VW days and made a shifter extension. I threaded a piece of 1/2 inch alum rod and had a delrin shift ball made. There is also a small lock nut made out of the same 1/2 inch alum rod.
Image
Image

This is the shifter in reverse.
Image

It looks a little funny but it lets me sit farther back with out streching my arm so far.

I think it is the blue one above the wiring harness. I am going to be digging into this more in a few weeks. When I pull the radiator and get the large fan working again.

So I have been working on the rear interior as of late. I took out the roll cage and got some new interior pieces.

I bought the rear trim set and the rear shelf cover.
Image
Image

The cover comes with not holes cut in it but does come with instructions and a template to cut the holes.
Image
Image

I only cut the wiper motor hole and not the two for the rear shock mount access. I am going to use rivnuts and hold the rear shelf on with some screws. I think it will look cleaner and I will not have to worry about breaking the material when I pull off the covers to get to the shocks.

So after taking out the roll cage this is what I had.
Image
Image

So I didn't like the three hole being there and got some stainless screws and sealing washers and pluged them up
Image

Greenmonster gave me the carpet pieces to put in the corners but they were red. I tried to paint them but I didnt clean them enough and it looked like shit. So I pealed the carpet away from the foam backing and glued some black vinyl to it. I put it on with the new pieces and this is what I got.
Image
Image

So now I need to finish the other side and get the shelf piece in. I also got the rear seatbelts for the car. So those will also be installed.

The roll cage will be in my garage. The seats will stay. I may get the rears redone in the same style material as they are now. The tops are just so sun damaged.

So I have the back seat stuff almost buttomed down. All the trim panels are in and so is the rear seat belts. The last thing I need to install is the rear parcel shelf. The factory has some plastic covers that mount on it so you can access the rear shock mounts.
Image
I didn't like those because I will have to take them off some time and do not want to crack the panel. So I installed some rivnuts in the holes where the stock press in tabs would go. I then made some new finishing screws. This way I can take it on and off easy and it will have a cleaner look with out the covers.
Image
Image
Image

So this weekend I should have this installed and have a few more pics.
