Finally got out today and did some part sourcing for the coolant plumbing and fan wiring. If I could find one full work day I could get her rolling in no time. Biggest items left now are throttle cable setup, fan wiring, gauge wiring and exhaust fab.

Also out of funds, for what it's worth.

I can relate. I have had a date or two with a psychotherapist. If we get serious she's going to have a field day with the whole Rover thing.

Small things now... Got accelerator cable installed. Used a road bike dérailleur cable and housing, with the barrel adjusters and bulkhead mount from the stock accelerator cable housing. I modified the accelerator pedal to use a part of a shimano road bike shifter to receive the cable end.

This particular OM617 has a sticky throttle, and the stock return spring won't bring it back to idle. I used a portion of the old rod system and hooked up a strong spring to the bulkhead. So far so good, and if the throttle cable breaks it automatically actuates the shutoff valve.

After one year the install comes to a close today! The truck is in the bay getting an exhaust built and I'm celebrating with a beer at the bar down the road. So glad this is done - I love wrenching on my truck but I love driving it more.

This is the first time in the entire build that it has been in someone else's hands. The bends (so far) aren't great but I'm paying less than $300.

This shows the brackets (4) bolted in. Phase IV includes grinding off the forward-protruding end of the bracket that isn't need any longer. Also need to powder coat the brackets. I have the original drawings and specs if anyone wants them.

Perfect fit... I can tell I am going to love this upgrade.

Legroom is pretty good too!

All in all, I should have paid someone to do this while I was deployed. Royal pain in the ass. Someone else could have done the fabrication better for sure. However, I saved a ton of money! The seats cost less than 300, and I spent about 150 on other materials and tools. A buddy welded the brackets by my own design, which cost me a bottle of scotch. Less than 600 altogether for what I expect to be a great upgrade.

Once I get around to the cosmetic/ finishing touches I think it will look pretty professional.
Hi there,
I would love to have some of your drawings or measurements,
I am about to make same mod in the back.
My truck is a 1998 i am worried if the seat belts will a problem to fit the seat as you did. Hence why i need the measurements if you can.
By the way, i am installing in the front a pair of mercedes seats. I am 190cm/6.2 so need not to be too high.

If you like i can tell you what model seats are from, they are good.

Let me know,

I'm afraid this is the only drawing I have - it is of the seat brackets and includes measurements. I will eventually be pulling the whole setup to paint the interior and when I do I can post more specifics.

Finally got my SDO panel and the remainder of my VDO gauges installed today. It took some trimming and the wiring took some cursing but it looks good. My oil pressure gauge is currently pegged but I think once I give each gauge an independent ground it will be fine. Click image for larger version

Dave, how's the readability of the gages in the center? Do they angle downward slightly, such that when you're trying to read them from the driver's seat, you have to turn your head?

I tried to add a VDO clock to replace my 24V meter in the center dash of my EXMOD which has no outer plate and found that it's hard to read the clock because its angled downward slightly. I was wondering if the SDO plate will correct it.

Not bad readability. It's not great but I can see the gauges well enough to see what matters on the gauge.

I'm 5'8" and these were taken from eye level

Little thing, but important nonetheless. Finished up the por-15 job by removing the middle floor board and applying to the top of the frame and middle crossmember.

Decided not to do line-x. The truck (my budget) is many many years away from any cosmetic work. Let's say 10 years. I figure when that happens the interior can get a re-spray or something. Line-x now would just mess that up. Besides.. What am I really protecting? Scratches in the load area? So I stole a stall mat from my garage floor and cut it to fit around my tub mods and it turned out pretty good. The noise reduction is substantial! Click image for larger version

I like the disco seats, in fact love the Disco seats. When Brewie finished up all the bent metal and rot in my tub having the underside and inside spray lined before paint made all the patch work disappear. You will appreciate down the road when you do.

Thanks - as I said previously I wish I had paid a pro to do my seat install. My sheet metal work isn't exactly concours. But hey, It works and would probably look better if it was covered with line-x... Maybe next year!

Started install of an Espar Airtronic D2 yesterday. I decided on an under-seat install which required an uncomfortable amount of cuts in my otherwise unmolested seat box. Click image for larger version
