Thanks again for the positive responses. Lots of work but well worth the effort.
I've had a couple member ask about the 3 point seat belts up front so thought I would post information here if OK.

I cut into the B Pillar and stuck a piece of square key stock about 10" long in the post. Plug welded the key stock, then rewelded the metal piece back into place.




The seat belts were purchased from Morris Concepts. MCSB1-5A-BK with the lift buckles. Also got the adjustable inside belt for up front in case the seat was moved forward or back from my spot so the 3 point belt felt right for whoever was driving.
The back seat belts are just the matching lap belts with lift buckles. Billy Morris and wife Robin are great people to work with. If something isn't right or you change your mind and want a rework on something, they have always been #1 in customer satisfaction.

This is what the lower retract looks like.


Upper Attachment point.



Center adjustable belts

Rear seat with lap belts.

I ended up moving the control knobs for the lights and wipers inboard to make room on that side for vent.
Got rid of the ash tray and moved the ignition to make room for the two center vents. A little work but I like the way it turned out as well.

Thank You guy's for all the awsome comments!!

I'm super pumped that I got to purchase the Edelbrock ProFlow EFI System in the classified section from Ryan V64SS.
Ryan seems like a really cool guy and hopefully someday get to meet him at one of the NorCal Events.
I have never messed with EFI, so hoping it's a ton of fun working through the fuel mapping. Within a few weeks this little blue ride should have the EFI supplying fuel.
