I guess my seats got shipped to the wrong person? Thanks Twisted Stitch! ha

Anyway they claim another set is getting sent today. I have been working on the interior when I get the chance. I finally pulled out all of the tar like stuff from the floor, cut out some more floor and welded in some holes. I have one more big hole to plate shut then I can start putting tube in the interior. I should take some pictures but I just forget when I am out there.

For the most time I have been working on the interior. I wish I wouldnt have ever installed Dynamat, that stuff is horrible to remove. The factory sound matting stuff was bad enough. Waiting on my seats

Lately nothing has been what I would call 'fun' haha

I enjoy building suspensions and frames over little details like interiors and engine wiring.

I think what you need to do is stop. Then take a step back and look at what you're actually building as a whole and what it will be when it's done. And then reevaluate weather or not all the the little work will be worth it lol. I think the choice will be clear
