Hit the barn for the first time in months today and tried to pick up where we left off.

Got the Vintage Air unit mounted to the firewall, threw the carpet in so that I could hack out a hole for the shifters and set the console in for reference while I mocked up the custom console in cardboard, then luan and eventually cut my first piece in MDF.

I need to source a set of 2008-09 black leather F150 Supercrew front buckets as I've decided to use them over the GW seats. The F150 seats are equally comfortable and 3 inches narrower (each) which will allow for an 11 inch wide console... which will allow for cup holders and rear seat AC vents. I'm going to use the arm rest cushion from an F150 so that they match and recover the GW rear seat in matching black leather.

Pretty patient, like Yoda but more Irish.

LOL... I think I'm going to go work on it now just because you made me laugh.

The color is Copperhead by Stacey David.

Going to take some work to adapt the base/seat rails, but the 2008 F150 seats are going to be a good fit.

Definitely want details on what you have to do to get those seats mounted and functioning! Those seats are really comfortable!

What size of hole are you left with for your gauges? That dash looks cherry! Love your color choice too, I'll for sure be following this build!

Thanks guys... had to purchase an additional F150 console for parts so the interior is on hold again until it arrives.

The driver's seat should fit with just some BFH work on the tranny tunnel. The passenger's side is going to be a challenge.

The plan is to incorporate the original gauge panel with the addition of two to four digital gauges. I'll have to look, if that was a different thread I'll find it and link it here.

The project and I are engaged in a battle of wills right now... and the project is winning.

I'm to a point where I either need to compromise my original vision or pay a professional to help me accomplish my original vision.

Well, I just spent how ever much time it took to read form your first thread to the one you posted today. I tell you what, your doing one hell of a job....

Don't get caught by burnout, don't get in a rush. Deadlines are just that DEADLINES, but man that's at work. What your doing is a work of art, so kick back take a brake enjoy what you've accomplished and pat your self on the back.

Ok, so much for making you feel good!

I only have two things left to say (get over it and get your slacking butt back to work) and (you make me sick) I had to say that last part so I don't feel so bad about my slacking on just doing a plain rebuild.
