More Interior Floor Finished and Part of the Trunk Floor.

I put the last sections of the interior floor in place today. They are just spot welded since I am wanting to make sure it all fits together and works before welding them down permanently. The trunk floor framing was pretty easy to install. Getting the floor on it was a lot more work. The big square opening in the convertible top well is going to be the cover that I can use to access the gas tank if I ever need to. The hole is just big enough to drop the tank down onto it’s mount. The trunk has a lot less room than it did factory but I needed the floor up that high so the air had a good place to exit. Having it exit right at the bottom of the car seemed pointless to me so I will be putting the opening on the bumper and the filler panel between the tail lights. I am thinking of just using expanded metal for the openings and if I paint the inside near the back flat black it won’t be that noticeable to anyone other than the car that is directly behind me in traffic.

The seat is just sitting there and is not actually mounted yet. I will install a pedal or two once I get the back floor finished and make sure I can actually drive the car like this. If my feet don’t fit then I will have to drop that area of the drivers side enough to be able to operate the pedals without hitting the steering column. I think it will work out fine though so it probably won’t be necessary.

  1. why not use another bumper cover from the
    FRONT end, it would work if your tags will be
    mounted between the tail lights

  2. That would look cool if I had a good one to use 🙂 I have a crummy 91 style bumper that has the lower part recessed but I only have one good 93/94 front bumper. I will keep looking around and if I can find one I will grab it and see if I can get it to work on there.
