Default Interior Work On Rose Is About Done

That was a funny comment, John! I would not be surprised if they could see it from there! I visited Danny today, but I have no pictures to upload. We were working on the speaker. The speaker I have is not the original speaker for the Squarebird. As I recall, when I tried to get one, Don, at Bird Nest told me that he did not have any of the original replacement speakers. So, I bought a two cone version. It had to be modified to get it into the speaker console. I had it sitting on top temporarily because we had not taken the center console out.

I talked with Don at Bird Nest and he told me that the original speaker for these Squarebirds is still on back order. He does not know if the company who makes this speaker for our Birds is going to make anymore or not. Soo, those of you who might need an original speaker, and can find one at other Tbird parts houses, you might want to get it while the getting it good....

Today, we tried to put it inside the center console and mount it as it should be. It would not go in place, even though I had trimmed down the sides and drilled new holes for the mounting bolts. Eventually, we figured out that the paper ring around one of the cones was what was keeping it from going in flat on one end. Sooo, we trimmed off a curved section on that end with a razor blade and it slipped down into place. We bolted it in. Before we did this, we put it in the car, hooked up the speaker, turned on the radio to see if it still worked and it did.

So Danny got the speaker mounted in place, the ash tray lights in place, and the new replacement ashtray in place. Now he can get the center console back into the car and everything hooked up to it that is needed. He still has some door panel work to do, fix a door lock that will not unlock, and adjust a door handle, and finish off the drivers side carpeting. We are getting there. When I have new pictures, I will post them.

Danny got more work done on the interior. The center console is back in place. The steering wheel shaft and cup has been painted. He still has some door panel work, touch up painting, paint cleaning, fix a door lock, and drivers side door handle, to do, and a few other things before he continues on. Here is the link.

Default Looking good Ray ...

My computer had a nervous breakdown, and then I was out of the country for 3 weeks so I've been catching up on my ford sites. Nice to see your almost there with the interior. Back to work on mine tommorrow. Regards, Mike

Danny is working on the front seats now. Besides these, there is still the things posted below that need to be done also to finish off the interior. I have ordered a new steering wheel from Jed Zimmerman. It will be in next week. My mechanic friend, Rich, will pull mine, install the new one and send mine to Jed as the replacement. Right now, that steering wheel looks really bad in the new interior! We are nearly there on completing the interior. After that, will be work in the trunk. Here is the link, if you need it.

Hey Ray, The interior is looking great. Cant wait to see it with the front seats in. I was playing around with a photo stitch software that I found on line, Panorama Plus SE. It takes photos and puts them together. It does a little bending and adjusting to make them fit and its all automatic. Looky here:

Hi Victor! Thanks for the photos! That is pretty cool. I am gonna have to check out that software. Yup, come the end of this week, the passenger seat might be done, and maybe the drivers side. Probably just the passenger side. There is a lot to do with the seats yet. The supports they sit on have to be cleaned, sealed and painted. Same for the frames for the seats. The foams have to installed, and then the new seat coverings. So he might get one done this week. They will not be put in, except maybe for picture taking and to see how they look, until all the touch up, clean up stuff in the interior is completed. The new steering wheel from Jed will be in this week and will be installed in the latter part of the week. After the interior is done, then comes the work on the trunk.
