Seats look good, what runners did you have to use and how did you mount the seatbelt clips as they are part of the seat originally

had to buy new runners and got the brackets welded on to them. and for the belts most sports seat have hole's you bolt the belt buckle to took a little bit of modification but not much.

Is there gona be some color coding of the interior going on, the red sticks out heaps over the grey theme. How hard was it to do the dials, ive been thinking about doing it 4 ages, buying them off ebay.

You need to recoverthe material peices on thedoor now to match.
How'd you do the seats? Just adapt them to the old seat rails or what?

Did you get those dials from speed_graphics on e-bay? They're the same as mine except mine are XR and I've only got tacho markings every 500rpm :evil: Details of your seat installation would be great.

Forgot to answer some questions. So:
-Yes the Ford logo was on the gauges already and it took like 10 mins to get it out of the car and depending on how tight your needles are takes like 5 mins to install. But my needles were really tight on so it took a bit longer, i was scared to bend one. If you want one i have the guys email or you can go on ebay. The best part is no blue led mods, because it lights up blue from the insert. Maybe if we get enough people intrested we could see if he can do better than $70!
- And If your gonna fit seats all you need to do is get the seats and buy a set of aftermarket rails then cut the brackets that bolt to your car off, then measure it all up and and weld them on the new rails. Or take them to a engineer or something.
