Back seat is done, and I changed my mind on the gauges. I bought Dakota Digital gauges for this car and I'm going to use the stock cluster for my '69.

After a bit of a summer break, work has been resumed. The battery tray holes are being welded up under the hood and then the car is going into the paint booth again to get the firewall, cage and trunk floor painted.
