    Not much to brag about this week. I got my replacement driveshaft installed and cleaned up some things on the rear end to keep stuff away from moving parts. I need to wire up my reverse lights and then I can get the car on the ground (hopefully for the last time). My seats are supposed to arrive early this week so it looks like I'll be starting on my interior really soon!

    Found it...

    I got my radiator from Champion Radiators. It fits great and is a quality piece. I'm not sure what your are referring to regarding my "issues"?

    Out of curiosity, what is the part number?

    Maybe 4 weeks. My only complaint is when I talked to them at SEMA last year they said they had a pattern for the rear seats to accommodate the DSE mini tub. When it came time to order them it turns out the don’t have a pattern for that.

    It's time to start putting the interior back together to test fit the rear seats. The seat back frame has already been modified to fit between the mini tubs, but the lower seats were never installed until now. It looks like I will be able to get away with trimming away some material on the quarter trim, but the seat foam and upholstery will have to be modified to allow room for the seat belts. As you can see from the pics, they are a tad tight on the sides. I was supposed to get my swatches for the front seat material but they must have "gotten lost in the mail" according to TMI. I should be receiving those early next week so I can take all of my interior parts to a shop to get a quote for everything.
