Got my drivers side Kirkey delivered on Saturday, probably going to weld some plate to the floor and some tubing to the plate and mount the seat to that, just have the seat propped up in there for now.

Dropped my mock up block in last night and laid heads on to see how the speed engineering headers fit, they don't, nothing some heat and a hammer won't solve though. Gonna take some measurements and figure out which oil pan will be used, most likely an f-body pan, the k member is already notched some.

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.
