Can't tell you how much I enjoyed this thread. I'm preparing to start on our 74 over labor day weekend. It was rear fire damaged and I'll be grafting a new rear clip first. Then addressing the rest of the build in stages.

Thanks that's great! Take pictures as you go if you can (we love pictures Wink ). It's great seeing people's projects, have fun with it!

On the subject of fire damage, I installed my Blazecut fire extinguishing thingy. It's placement was highly influenced by those three bolts already being there.

Almost from the beginning when I set up the steering wheel placement in this car I've had this festering idea (festering?) to remove the rear stops on the seat tracks allowing the seat back farther. I spent the last five years wondering if this would be stupid, I have no idea. Let's find out.

Each notch in the track adjustment is roughly 3/4 inch or a couple centimeters. One notch further than normal still allows two adjustment teeth to remain engaged. This feels about right to me, allowing a little more leg room.

If my seat and person suddenly shoot off to the back of the car Shocked I'll report here for appropriate ridicule. Or you could laugh at me now.
