Its not perfect, but here is a better closeup of it. For the part looking into the trunk, I got some old pegboard and black vinyl wrapped it. I might consider taking the tan off of the 04 seat bottom and have it put on the stock 69 seat to fill that gap. Considering everything else that need attention on this car, I am not even going to tackle that for awhile.

Car looks bitchen! What is the story with how yours is lowered?
Thank You, mine isn't done either! I have Adjustable front coil overs with Bilstein Sport shocks front & Rear & 4.5 Mid Eye Leaf, Had to roll the fenders so the wide tires wouldn't rub.

Ok, Next....

The PS setup never had the hose bracket, so I added that.







After that, I put on my Sub-Frame connectors from last year. Was a minor PIA to put in, just hope it worth it. One of these days, Ill have them welded in, but for now, it is what it is.







Then I got the Brake Lines replaced. The old ones were all shades of messed up. One had major dry rot, another had a hole almost rubbed through it, and the rear was sitting on a turndown. When I put the replacement rear braided line, I noticed they bent the bracket and lines to try and clear the turndown. While this helped the angle, it still rubbed. So I decided to put it back in stock config, re-bent the lines and bought a heat sleeve to protect it. Should be fine.

When I pulled off the old "groovy" door panels and put the new ones on, I had no hardware what-so ever to put armrest back on the car. Being simple, I started to look into door pull straps. Ended up getting these lift gate straps from a Santa Fe (Part Number: 817922B000HZ ). Think it worked out pretty good!

Then finally, I got new tires for the Mach 1 rims. Delinte D7s in 245/45/17. Nice looking tire for the price. Would have put a bigger size in rear, just didn't have the money. Still, I like how it turned out. The front looks a little high, but they measured the same. Being the springs are brand new, I think it will settle a bit. I might speed that up by cutting a .25 - .50 coil out of it. Time will tell.










That's it for now, once i get it aligned, going to actually drive it. I know, a shocker.
