As far as the seats bolting to the New mount. I used the lowest seat position to bolt my seats to the mount. Not sure if it was my new mount location, but I had some trouble getting all four bolts for each seat to align. I had to do some prying to get the last hole and bolt through the seat to the mount. (probably my issue as I might have had the mount slightly twisted), Overall it works great and the seats are extremely comfortable and look great.

Then Pro-Car Web site shows that have rear seat material that you can buy that matches the front seat but when I called them they said I had to remove my old seat material and send it to them and they would sew the new material to match. Heck I can do that here so I sent my rear seat out locally to have them recovered to match the fronts. (Was much cheaper than the quoted $550.00 from Pro-Car.
Cool, thanks for the info!!

I got the original Deluxe Heater Setup all cleaned and polished. I got everything installed to work the AC wirelessly except I’m waiting on the new plastic lens. That comes in Saturday. I’m also going to run all LED instrument lights (including the one for the heater).

Been taking everything out of the dash that I can and still be able to start the car. I need to be able to drive the car over to a friends house that’s going to help me with the rewire and the install of the Rain Gear wipers, the AC system and the Retro Radio..

Took out my non-working original Radio (I installed it just to fill in the hole!). Today I got in my Retro Sound AM/FM Bluetooth capable Radio. While I have everything out I set it up so it fits the Dash. You have quite a bit of adjustments to deal with. The shafts are installed separate and plugged into the main unit, so you have to set the side to side adjustment and the depth of the shaft adjustment. You also have to screw on the face-plate (the Dial). Looks like a great radio that comes in a small package. You do need to attach the rear mounting strap as the shafts are not strong enough to support the unit.

I'm sure you meant to say "Deluxe Heater" above.

Haven't seen metal that clean on a '57 since my first one in 1968!

I was pleasantly Surprised Val!

Today I went out and POR-15’ed the floors in the Fasser. It’s a Satin Black color but looks shiny as it hasn’t dried yet! Actually the color doesn’t really matter as I’ll never see it but I’ll know it’s there and done.

Great work there.

Always wondered why they used that goopy tar crap to seal the bell housing bolt hatch. Makes it a PIA to get it open. Seems like a simple gasket would have made it much better for us, as well as all GM mechanics who had to open them things for warranty work. I've thought many times about coming up with something better.
