Got the seats and door panels in today. Also converted the adjuster end on the T/A mirror to the original GTO style, so it looks original on the drivers door panel. Works like it should too! I thought I was gonna end up using the T/A style mount on the panel.

Got the last few small interior peices installed to finish it off. Put the windshield in, and polished the trim. Took a few pics.

I have to do a few shakedown runs. I'm sure there's some little things that need to be adjusted, but once that's done I hope to put a lot of miles on it!

Excellent.  I’m looking forward to seeing it in-person.  Pm me if you take it for a ride and maybe we can meet for a socially distant CAB.
