Haven't done much lately. I've been driving the car a lot actually. If it wasn't so damn humid, I'd take it to work.

But been doing some little stuff. Seat belt sleeves were scuffed up, so I ordered some repros. Color is a bit off. Unsure if it's enough to bother me and force me to hit it with some SEM black. Prob not.

Oem on right. Reproduction looks bluer. A little longer too since I got 87-89 style but doesn't affect anything

When assembled, not too bad. Looks better than the badly scratched drivers side original

I also had a discount at reslinegoods for submitting some photos. So I ordered the leather dash cover. Only cost me $30 so let's give it a shot.

That's the side that faces in. It's the other side that's scratched up.

Here's an old pic. See what I mean?

Sorry, I didnt mean you were OCD for buying them. I meant that the new one looked good in the car as is without SEM paint.

Color looks good to me. I was wanting a buy a repro set of those to use in my Mercury, but I can't find anyone that makes blue ones.

Well this thing is a bit tricky to install. No good way to mark where to drill the holes.

That’s kind of neat Mike. It’s about the only way to strengthen between the shock towers without a roll cage I would think.

Except for maybe an IRS, I guess the frame of it does something similar.

Area you going to modify the caps to cover the shocks now?

Yeah. Gonna buy a cheap set on eBay, trim them, paint them to match and mount.

Just need to finish mounting it. Raining this weekend so unsure if I can do a test drive.

Mounting car seat tether on right side and prob a fire extinguisher on the left.

Ok. It's in. Kinda a PITA. You drill one hole, test fit, mark, drill test fit. Had to assemble and disassemble the brace a few times. But it's in and solid. I didn't drive the car yet to see if it actually did anything.

Gonna track down some cheap shock cover trims and cut those to fit and paint. My originals will go into my box of misc. black interior parts

Now need to track down a fire extinguisher for the left side, and a tether for the right.

Here's what I'm sort of doing. I really wanted to get a fire extinguisher into the car but never had any good ideas where to put it.

Man your interior is so nice. I may have somehow missed your write up on your rear seats, are those covers on your fox seats or SN95 rear seats?

Literally page 1 is where I did the rear seat. How this thread got started :)

Sn95 seat covers on the fox hatch seat frames. The seat bottom is the sn95 bottom, but it doesn't fit well. I have a fox bottom I plan to recover...but haven't decided in what just yet

Latest delivery.

Fronts are on backorder until Oct. I was originall going to go with the custom MM bilstein struts but for my needs and spring rates they aren't necessary. They are pretty expensive compared to the Bil HDs.

I just need to track down the MM recommended 25mm solid SN95 rear sway bar and my rear setup is ready to install.

Up front, I still need some stuff
