Hi guys what are those brackets? I know the last picture is one of the exhaust hangers bracket. Are the first two pictures are part of it too?

How will you arrange them? I did notice they are off set after I got the lift down
I can turn the clamps 90 degrees so it will be harder to notice the bolts but how is it possible to hide them?

Shut out to the guys from the 'interior' forum - gave me some great advice of how to set the head liner from this:

It ain't perfect but it is much better than how it was...
The car is 'under construction for too long. I'm now on the 'don't get it right just get it running' way and hope to get her cruising next week.
I used a glue spray (and must tell you, after taking the headliner in and out 4 to 5 times myself it became an easy task for one person) and I hope it will survive summer days here.

continuing with rebuilding the interior having 2 questions if anyone can help...
1. are there any cables under the kick panel? Want to make sure I'm routing things right before installing it...

2. I saw on Fbodywarhouse that there are male and female seat belt bolts. I saw the differences between the threading length. The male is fully threaded and the female has a smooth taper. Which one is going where? As far as I remember when taking the interior apart - I had only the females of those bolts and the male ones were regular bolts with Hex head. Does it make sense? Also, I'm missing 2 of the female's bolts... got lost. Is there anything special about those bolts or can I just search for grade-8 ones? What are the numbers on the bolt's head are saying?

Well, nailed it!
kinda...
I found plumber putty... It has a weird name in my country but manage to find it. (amazing how stuff names are so simple in the states!)
Since there were only 2 packages I took them both and put each on each kick panel.
I think it was more than enough since the left panel barely squeezed inside and the pass side needed to reduce the amount of putty since it didn't sit fit.
I took an extra measure and put the 3M caulk around the locations of the screws just in case. (Didn't have more putty).

Hope to install the dash tomorrow.

Put the speakers on.
Eventually, I managed to install the rear 6*9 kicker speakers without any adapters. Fits good!
I started to fabricate a frame for the front speakers when I thought why the hell would I mount 2 stereo speakers under the dash same as mono so I searched for different locations...
They fit right in the door with no hassle at all (made me wonder why people are working to fit them to the kick panels instead of the doors).

Next up is the dash + electricity, bleeding brake. installing the E-cable. and hopefully, run it.
I tried installing the dash today but broke the flimsy oval part above the steering wheel. Epoxied it and will try again tomorrow.
What are the tabs at the lower part of the dash ah the pass. side?
Is all that holding the dash these 3 black clips?
