      -Sorry for the late response.  I appreciate the offer, but I'm pretty well stocked on parts at the moment.  Think I'm going to try and sort through all of mine and sell a few as well.

      -That sounds rad.  I'll not sure what I'll be swapping with yet, but either way, it's going to be a while.  I posted a couple pics of the gas pedal below, let me know if you need a different angle.

Sorry about that, here's a couple more.  Had a hard time squeezing the camera in there, but hopefully this gives a better idea.

Started working on the floor.  The vinyl covering was cracked and broken, but luckily the floor didn't have any serious rust.  Only a little bit of rust behind the pedals, and a quick sand took it all off.  For sound proofing, I used Frost King duct insulation.  There is a lot of info about using it as a vibration dampener on other forums, with a lot of mixed reviews.  Some folks say it works nearly as well as DynaMat, or similar products.  I personally don't believe that, but I do believe that it will help a little bit, and the price was right.  I was able to cover the floor and door panels for under $40 (2 rolls @ ~$19 each), with a little left over for doubling up in certain areas.  I'm going to be putting carpet over it anyways, and that should help a bit too.

Also made some speaker boxes for under the seats, as I wanted to keep the door panels looking clean.  Carpet is going in today (hopefully), will have some pictures soon.

Your door panels are already cut, and if they are in the doors you will be able to hear the music better.
