    I got the carpet finished last night and am very pleased with it. Bolting down the shifter retainers helped get rid of a couple wrinkles. I still need to cut the kick panel vent holes and secure the panel that I made for the rear of the cab where the gas tank was.

    It was late when I got done but I had to set the seats in before I called it quits. They can be bolted down next time I am out.

    You can hardly tell I have brackets under the carpet and insulation to assist with mounting these seats.

    Truck is getting awfully dusty - need to get it done!

    just an idea for you,

    some heater hose slid over the sm465 handle is a pretty slick way to clean it up or dress it up a bit, it also gives it a little more of a modern look and makes it more comfy,

    I think I used 5/8 on mine but I dont recall, :D

    Thanks for the compliments.

    I have a chrome shifter that I can use if I can figure out how to bend it without screwing up the chrome.

    Getting so close to being driveable. If I could just take a couple days off work . . .

    the show I think is called "Trucks" the guy that rebuilt the copperhead chevy truck. Cut the shifter with a saw and I think did a 45* angle on it and welded it back up to make it closer to his arm to shift. Just an idea, dont know for sure if this is what you want to do, thought I throw it in.
    Your truck looks awesome.
