little update over the weekend, finally brought the car into the shop! also put the motion race works steering column in, its gonna have to come back out and get trimmed down some cause i'm short lol. Nitrous bottle is just laying on a block of wood, but i do like that location so i might get brackets and keep it there.

Got my seat mounted over the weekend. Welded 2x2x.125" plate to the floor and then 1" square stock directly to the plates, turned out pretty good, the position feels about right. Also found a deal yesterday on a frame notch kit so I went and grabbed that up right away.
