Seat risers arrived but like most aftermarket parts they needed some work. The center brace was welded on lower than the rest so it rocked back and forth. Simply drilled the spot welds, clamped it in to place and rewelded.

Also found some time to vapor blast a few random pieces that I picked up recently. Bumper brackets and subframe connectors. The hood hinge is original to the car.

Both sides of the rear floor needed patched. You can buy this part aftermarket but it is pretty simple so I just made one.

Found an original decklid last week on craigslist. It had a small dent but no rust. Brought it home and blasted it. Had to remove original primer/paint, repaint, bondo, primer and last coat of paint. Under all of that was good metal. I just blasted the topside and shot a quick coat of epoxy primer on it......As a BONUS the underside was untouched and still covered in original Ford Nightmist Blue which is the exact color we're painting this thing when it's finished.

Got a few little things done over the last week or so.

Cleaned the underside of the decklid, removed the old seal and removed all the goo that was holding it on. Prepped it and hit with some touch-up paint that was a great match to the original color. Finally applied the new trunk seal. I will probably go ahead and order a reproduction spare tire decal to finish it off.

Also got the seat risers installed. I scuffed the e-coat on the underside and shot some enamel on them just to give them a little protection. Before welding them in I also put some sound dampener under them to keep road noise and heat to a minimum. Once the location was measure and marked I sanded off the epoxy primer and applied weld-thru primer in the areas that the seat riser would meet the floor pan.

I'm currently working on prepping and installing the rear seat to trunk divider. I opted to go with a steel version instead of original cardboard style. Currently it is half painted and mocked up getting ready for pilot holes to be drilled. Once it is painted I'll apply sound killer to it as well.

Just hope you never lose your trunk key as that was an easy access to the trunk in a pinch! Wes
