Re: Bowtie468's Extreme '68 BuildPage

A little progress made in the last 2 days ! I've gotten the sound deadener layed out in the cab. I plan on extending it up the firewall and also onto the back cab wall, but will use the plain black mat without any brand name plastered all over it, for those areas. Won't be noticeable where the carpet stops.
Also mounted the wiring harness fuse block today. No wires have been terminated, yet ! Mounted a/c bulkhead manifold, ignition switch, a/c controller, brake pedal assy., brake booster and steering column !
Tomorrow, i'll work on getting the new seat positioned and redrill holes for the seat tracks, install carpet, interior light and sun visors.

Here's a few pics of the progress !!
