    My Son Mike's 69 Mach 1 Restoration

    Been a while since I posted an update. Mike and I have got the entire back of the car welded together, the floor pan fitted, and subframe connectors installed. Also, moved the seatbelt connection points back 3” to allow the seats to move back for big guys like us!

    Console lid dimensions please.

    Actually would not be very difficult. Not sure if it would be frowned upon if you started modeling original Ford parts. However probably would be more accurate than the re-pop crap that is sold for good money that’s for sure!

    Console lid dimensions please.

    Thanks for the props. But it is second nature to me as I have designed robotics and industrial automation for most of my career. I usually do drawings on CAD. But I resisted and did the notebook sketch.

    No problem. Good luck. Eager to see finished product.

    Here are a couple of pics and a quick sketch of my sons console lid. Hope this helps.

    Does anyone know if console for a fastback and coupe are the same?

    Seats Need Moving Back

    The new risers that came with my new floor pan are also about 2.5”. So probably about as good as can be. Thanks for the help.

    Excellent. Thanks for the measurements. I will check my factory risers and post results. Won’t be back from vacation until week after next. Will check then.

    Yes I too require extra belly room. I have standard risers and it would be great to get some measurements of your low profile risers to see if it would be worthwhile. Thanks for the help.

    Anyone know how much extra head room a low profile seat riser provides? Also where to buy them?

    Yes the plate welded to the back of the inner rocker panel with the tapped hole in it. It is approximately 3” x 1-1/2”.

    Seats Need Moving Back

    Mike and I got the seatbelt points moved. The floor pan was fairly straight forward. I verified the rockers did have a reinforcement plate for the seatbelt point. So I came up with a plan that I thought was pretty cool and easy to execute. I layed out a rectangle that was symmetrical such that when I cut it out and rotated it, the seat belt point and reinforcement plate moved back 3” and fit back in the same spot (see pic). All I had to do is weld it back in. Ended up being real easy. Thought this may help someone else who may be thinking of this. The final grinding pic is of the opposite side just for reference.

    Thanks for the info guys

    I’m fairly confident there is a reinforcement plate with the nut to give it strength during an accident. If that is to be added, makes it a bit more complicated than just welding in a nut.

    Any suggestions on moving the rocker panel seat belt point as I do not want to disassemble the rocker to get to it from the back. Maybe just cut it out and weld in scab plate with new nut? Thanks for all the help guys.
