    So im trying to see what the best way to install this wiper motor is. Self-tapping? Spot weld? This mount also has the center hood bumpstop and the rear tension bar mount stud. What yall think?

    Panel adhesive and screws or rivets might work.

    Make 100% sure you use stainless steel rivets & not the standard "pop rivets".

    Yep, I was just reading about rivets and it was saying to use steel rivets. How should I seal it to make sure no water gets in? Lay a strip of gasket maker before I squeeze the rivets?

    Got started on the dash. I wired up the wiper system and hooked up a battery to check out all this wiring...everything works as it should so far. The black carpet should be here today. Gonna try to get the doors and fenders on this weekend.

    Make sure before you button the dash up that you do a trial fit with the top panel. I did my 81 car without doing that and when I came to finish it all up and put the top panel on, the dash was tilted slightly toward the seats making the alignment between the main dash and the top panel out of whack. The side seams didn't line up and it was too late to get in, loosen the dash and push it forward. No one has noticed it yet but it pisses me off.

    Cheers......R.

    Got the carpet from Auto Custom Carpets. Looks decent and smells brand new. Nylon cutpile with mass backing. You can see the mass backing in the pics, supposed to make it easier to install and deaden noise from underneath.

    New carpet is one of the best returns on investment one can make on a project. It will make a car seem brand new inside. Nice call on the mass backing, I should have ordered that when I did my 65 Impala.

    Had to get the mass backing, rockauto had it for the same price as ebay had the carpet without mass backing.
