Looks really good, if you have the resources it can sometimes be nice to start with a project so you are not afraid to disassemble it completely to end up with a really nice product!

If you get a chance could you take some pics or measurements to show where the four speed floor pan conversion is located, it is kind of a funny shaped piece, I'd like to have a good idea where it is located fore and aft before I go hacking up my car!! How were they attached to the floor originally?

 

 


 they were spot welded in place and thats how this one went back in. The repop humps almost push into place with the shape of the floor. We took loots of measurements plus I have other four speed cars to check. If you can install drive line with shifter and console you can move things around to a happy place where shifter clears all then nail them down. We over restored the hole in the floor with a smooth edge instead of factory correct hack job lol. Also used seam seal under the hump as well as on top.

Thanks for the information, yes that is half the trouble replicating the splattery torch cut hole that horrified early restorers. Most couldn't believe the factory would do it that way!!
