The insulation is installed on the floor. I bought a pack of poster board to use as templates. I also installed the metal divider for the trunk. It took be about 2 hours to coat the floor, 2 hours to add the sound deadener strips and 7 hours to put in the insulation. In supplies it was around 270.00. I still have more of it left for when I work on the roof, package tray, etc.

If you are interested, here is the shopping list of what I used.

Your 69 looks great John! What kind of seats are those? They look natural in there. 

The seats are Corbeau Sport seats with seat tracks. I am really pleased with them. I had a budget for the interior and these fit the bill. I highly recommend if you need new seat belts to get a set from https://www.morrisclassic.com and stay away from RetroBelt.

FYI on installing them. The frame bolts to the floor and the seat tracks bolt to the seat. You will need to buy bolts for the tracks. I got grade 8 - 5/16 x 1.5 (18 thread) bolts with washers and nuts to hold the bolts to the frame. Then used the original seat nuts to secure it to the floor.

I completed one of the doors. The other side will have to wait until the glass is aligned properly. This had its own challenges: missing hardware on the door, having fun with water shield and door putty, which way the door panel clips go, and the remote mirror install.

FYI if you plan on upgrading to the racing mirrors, you have 2 choices. The one pictured below and the other style with the chrome inset bezel. I didn't realized I purchased the "wrong" mirrors  so I had to modify the door panel. The door panel has a punch out for the inset bezel style. The racing mirrors will have the controls WITHOUT an L shaped bend.

John, wow...you made great progress this summer, car is looking really great.  It's cool when the car actually starts to look like your old sketches and renderings....nothing like seeing it in in person I suppose....must be exciting!

Look forward to seeing some pics of it going down the road with you behind the wheel....

Thanks I have been driving it a few days a week to work out all the bugs. New projects have cropped up.

So you can see its been a while since I have been able to get back to this. Christmas and other projects have eaten away my time and money, PLUS the rain that keeps coming back. I got the final pieces that hopefully will allow me to start driving this without fear of potholes or sudden stops. 

First was the brakes. The jokers that the previous owner used did such a poor job on the brake upgrade that I have spent many hours and dollars correcting. I had to replace the master cylinder, brake lines (they split the heads), proportioning valve, and finally the brake arm because NONE of them were correct for this car. Technically its still not the way I would have done it since the front and back calipers are the same size. Its currently a lot better but I still need to work with the brake bias.

Next was the front suspension. They cut the springs at least 2 inches, plus the 1.75 Shelby drop made for a butt-clenching ride with any road construction/pot holes/etc. So now I have all new factory suspension with Eibach Performance springs. I have new tires coming on Wednesday to replace the destroyed tires.

Also this weekend I started working on finishing up the stereo. I worked on the kick panel speakers and wiring. I would have worked on the package tray and rear speakers, but one of the speakers is defective and has to be replaced. I'm hoping to get some answers to questions I have on some installation challenges and get the radio in this coming weekend. FYI this design makes for a VERY tight fit with the parking brake.
