Today I had to fit up my old head deck as the low series deck was driving me nuts, i realised half way through fitting the double din deck the radio hit on the plastic cover where the air con ducts run to the rear air vent outlets, which in this case dont exist cause its a ute, so i chopped it out and squeezed the double din in, quite happy with the outcome

That's a really nice XH, the paint looks mint. Great wheels too. How far off do you think the turbo & future mode are?

and i kept the best till last , i just acquired a set of FG Super Pursuit seats for a fairly good price and are in really good condition. The boost will have to wait for a little more as i want to finish the interior before i move onto the other parts of the ute. Now i have to figure out how to mount these bad boys :D

Decided to pull my finger out and get the interior done today, Sprayed he centre console black , fitted the FG SP Seats and layed down marine carpet in the tray.

I am so happy the way it turned out and the Super Pursuit seats hug so well :D

Modded Rails ,i cut the rear mount off the inner rail and welded a piece of 3mm mild steel so it would sit right.
And with the outer seat rails i moved the spacer from the rear to the front and it mounts perfectly.

Funny enough when changing the seat belt buckles over i found out the thread is 3/8' , i thought it would of been metric

As for boost it is coming , just need some small parts and it will happen

There is another mod i am looking into , making a hardlid then grafting the bulge from the a BF FPV hardlid
