    Got the new mid plate made turned out pretty good. Just didn't like the off the shelf stuff for the AFX

      nothing like welding and bending c/m tubing in 90 degree weather. Have the floor welded in and finishing up the roll cage.

        Also the 64 Plymouth Savoy we just finished will be coming up for sale soon. 605 aluminum Hemi 1225 hp on the dyno. Best of everything/. I did a thread on the build of the car on here.

          Love watching your build, but I would make sure on the way your seat brackets are, putting them that way(slanting forward) doesn't leave much leg room

              They’re supposed to face forward that way, unless you’re talking about ‘flipping’ them over so the ‘forward point’ is on the bottom, mounting it to the floor instead on the top, mounting to the seat frame??? I’m thinking......

              Question of the day: which seat has the back that tilts forwards.

              The set I have for the A/FX are original A 990 seats that Gary Ball had saved just for this project.
