    • Today I wanted to install the kick panel fresh air vents, l/s went in no problem, not so lucky with the r/s. I had to remove the dash & the heater box to get the r/s one in, & then reinstalled the heater box.

      • Today since the dash is still out of the Coupe I made a mounting plate for the AAW main wiring harness relay pack & the fuel pump cut off switch. I will be using a center mount parking brake from a 1987 Mustang, not the factory foot brake so I bolted the mounting plate in place of the foot brake.

        • Yesterday I removed the relay mounting plate & painted it so it doesn't rust & installed riv nuts to mount the relay pack. Mounted the fuel pump cut off switch & re installed the mounting plate.

          • Today I took advantage of the mild weather & rolled the coupe out of the garage & welded in the reinforcement panel on the underside of the trans tunnel for the center mount parking brake.

            • Today was another mild day so I finished up the welding for the parking brake handle assembly. Here is a pic of the reinforcement plate from yesterday.



              Today I welded on the reinforcement plate cover to cover the hole in the floor. I also welded 2 bolts to the cover so they would stick through the floor to make bolting in the parking brake handle assembly easier.



              Here is a pic of the parking brake handle assembly installed.

              • Today I finished installing the Fat Mat under carpet sound deadening insulation adding pieces to the trans tunnel, & under the drivers side seat.

                      • Mike,
                        You may have mentioned it earlier, and if so, please tell me again - what are the bucket seats out of?
                        They don't look to me to be '69 Mustang buckets.......

                          The front buckets & the rear seats are out of a 1970 Mustang Coupe. The seat back release on the 69 high back bucket is half way up the side of the seat back & the 1970 is at the bottom side like mine.
                          Today I started the install of the AAW wiring harness, & mounted the relay pack.
