Iím still here, albeit in a in a lesser capacity due to ill health of my wife. Havenít had much time to work on the car over the last year, but still keep an eye on whatís going within the forum. The big thing with Facebook is the amount of armchair mechanics and builders that like to put down others hard work just because they donít like the look or the finished job. While these guys are in the minority, most people are generally great and will help out just as the members here do. I t is always great to check up on how projects are progressing (or not in my case) and keep a lookout for anyone who needs a hand or parts.
Regards,
Jim

Hi Cam, I adapted a GTR dash into the FC panel but lost room for the switches. This would have meant putting a panel under the dash for them. I wasnít happy with the end look so I am now playing with an oval cluster from Dakota Digital which will allow me to relocate the switches diagonally on both lower ends and still maintain the size dash.

They have a screw in the door well and 2-3 bolts along the length from memory, but the rear fins are different as they have a notch in them so the extension fits flush.

They donít have the mounting plates on them as it was too difficult to press them in. So he has made them as a separate part if you need them.

Looking real good mate, you canít rush excellence. I brought my seatbelts from Repco, they are Klipan belts, may be able to buy them direct.

Just a thought, if you donít do any good with the message, get in contact with Ethernet Queensland FE-FC car club, they may be able to help you.

The members forum name is FE 4 ME in Queensland, $15 and he will send a link to download the complete catalogue. I have it and found it very useful during my rebuild.
Not sure if he is still around as his last post was back in January. Best thing to do is send him a message and see if you get a reply.

Hi Rick, a forum member had them for sale as a download version a while back, Iíll see if I can find his details. From memory he was in Queensland.

I can vouch for them, have used them on mine with no problems.

Hi Rob, Iím fairly sure the floor pan I had for my rebuild may have been an EK one. If you look at my build page the photo of the pan shows a U shape pressing on the left side top at the joint seam. When I removed the FC floor it didnít have that pressing in it. Check yours and the EK one and do some measurements to be sure, would be a lot easier job if it fits.

Can relate to that, I get told all the time. She wants to know why I persist with rebuilding mine, I keep telling her it keeps me sane.

Looking good Art, you can be lucky, glad to see the body is in reasonable shape. Glad to see the floor worked out for you.

Donít want to put a spanner in the works, but if you purchased a standard rubber there is no slot for the stainless moulds to fit into. You need a special rubber.

I wouldnít be overly concerned about the oversized plates, itís better to be to large than to small. From memory I made my plates 100x75x3mm for the parcel shelf and inner guards, 200x75x3mm for the b pillars and I changed the floor plate to 1000x100x3mm and bent it to fit under the tunnel.
Iíve replied to your message with the page number on my build page with pictures.

Just a bit of advice guys, if you are putting side and middle belts in i.e. RH, LH and centre the ADRís now require a separate anchor point for all belts. I had to redo mine as I only had one either side of the tunnel for the side buckles and the centre lap belt.

Sorry mate, I only have a set for my sedan.
