Well I may have waited too long to start this thread because I have already acquired many parts but here it goes!

I started off with a green filter and was shocked by the difference in size and quality

My next move was an AWR motor mount, even though it specifically said to not get a 95a for a road car, I did [dunno]

Since then I have gotten a stainless shift knob that I could not be happier with!

After that my package from super bright leds came in and as childish as they may make me look I love them! (you can see my shifter's sun protector, yes so far it has worked well)

Next up I got my induction hose from Mountune but they were greatly backordered on black so they decided to send me a yellow...

And now we are up to date on what I have finished, here is what I have started:

Nice, and great craftsmanship [thumb], but I would rather just save the weight involved (as little as it may be vs. your floor build) with removing everything past the front seats to begin with. [wink]
I agree but it is my daily car and I need the room but I have tried to use the lightest things while building it, I will try and get a weight on it afterwards!

How is the 95A AWR treating you? Ended up trading my 70A when I got a mountune RMM for a steal, and the difference in vibration is night and day.

I can't imagine how a stiffer mount would be, for a DD no less.

I don't mind it at all, anything below 1600 rpm is a really bad shake (mirror vibration) but once you get going it's fine. If you're extremely sensitive you can feel minor constant vibration but I have a few hundred miles on now and I don't plan on changing it.

Little more work done yesterday and today, the structure has been wrapped, this fabric was in my 1987 Toyota one ton dually pickup truck on a speaker box that I built. (I will put some pictures at the end)

57990024175__B35C4F58-C73A-4F88-8495-E02CCD91E3CA.jpg This is the completed section over the spare tire, I added a simple nylon loop to pull it up, due to the way I built it it has to be pulled out over the front section it will not fold up because of the plastic that juts out to hold the stock panel in the higher position.

Next up I received my light splitter and parts from Tasca so I now have my dash light.
IMG_2480.jpeg IMG_2483.jpeg And as promised here is my Toyota for anyone that is interested, it was a 4 speed manual with the 22RE motor (lets see who can name all the cars in the picture, bonus points for the one under the green cover!)

Today was the final day of building and covering my floor, here is the result

I am planning on a cargo net between the two panels I just need to find one that works, as for the exposed plywood the plan is to put all my bumper stickers of places I've been there.

I love what you did with the rear. I think I might try to copy it for mine.

The only thing that's ever in the back is my dog and I'd love for her to have that kind of space and a flat surface to use.

Good looking build! Keep it going!

Thank you very much! I'm sure your dog would be appreciative, mine are!

I’m getting a FiST mini camper idea from this. Being able to travel and sleep back there would save shit loads on hotel bills.

Oh it saved me a lot of money when I went to tail of the dragon I didn't have to stay in hotels, all the trip cost me was gas money! I would definitely recommend it.
