Ooo, me likey. I bet my fatass could probably fit in those comfortably. Does someone make PNP brackets for your car and the GTS II? Suede, leather, cloth?

Also, if I may beg the PN on that head unit...

The brackets from corbeau apparently fit the stock locations from what I have read online.

Just got an email, seats are back ordered. Sigh. Price is too good to go elsewhere. I hate this trend of companies listing items as in stock on their website only to find out they are out of stock.

Interior is back together, just need install:

Dash Cover
Steering Wheel
Corbeau Seats (Backordered)
Door Seals

Still have to buy rear seat material to reupholster them in black to match the front seats.

Comin' right along! Is it possible to get another set of grills for those speakers? Then you can paint them camel or tan or whatever to match the interior

Thanks! Dash cover is on, looks like I have a new dash now. I get the new steering wheel today and then I'll take some more photos of the semi-finished interior.

I temporarily mounted the radio last night, hated having to keep it on the passenger side floor. Going to need to find a permanent solution soon.

Five speed. The gas pedal is removed in the photo, you can see the metal lever that it attaches to.

There are two ***** on the bottom that the pedal snaps into, then it presses against that lever.

Ah ok. Didn't notice the arm.

Are those pedals placed as close as they look?

They don't feel any different (aside from being floor mounted) than any other pedals I've driven on. They do look pretty close though.

I'll bet it's nice for rev-matching.

Sorry for lack of pictures. Here is the semi-finished interior. Still waiting on the seats, and I need to clean the door cards as they are a few shades darker than they should be. Also waiting for the BMW horn button. Oh and the shift surround/center console is not installed. I only have the one for A/C which I'm not putting in (as of right now), so I'm still deciding if I want to go with just a radio mount and storage compartment instead.

Don't mind the damn carpet piece that fell down... Needs moar glue. Got the center console mostly in. I'm going to make a block off plate for everything above the radio. It will just screw in. Then I can wait until I get enough motivation to put back in the A/C and not have to look at the empty vent hole in the center console...

Wow, looking good. Wish you'd kept the stock wheel, though.

I did keep the stock wheel... in my cabinet. The problem is that all 4 of the posts were cracked nearly all the way through. One good bump and I'd be holding just the outer ring. I admit the momo looks a bit out of place, but it is much better in person, and surprisingly makes turning the car much easier with the manual steering.

You need one of the wood grain Nardis for this.


Cool retro car
