The car is a 67. We're making a variety of updates while it's all apart.

The stock seat mounts were removed and replaced with some flat pieces that
match the adaptors I created to use some 2004 Suzuki Verona we  found in
the local wrecking yard.

I came up with an in-tank FI pump to feed the Megasquirt engine.


Being a 67 there was no provision for FI so we added a supply and return
line. The third tube is conduit to hold the fuel pump wires running back
from the relay board living behind the rear seat back.

Done. We're also doing a lot of work with enclosed spaces in the body. More
on that later.
