Mike,

 

Is that really my old car? Wow... I've said it before and I'll say it again: Nice Job!

 

Cant wait to see the whole thin finished. Of course you'll have to post a lot of pictures of both interior and exterior. Maybe some before and after shots so everyone can truly appreciate the transformation.

 

Tell me about your heel pad. Looks like a small alloy strip. Great idea. Did you purchase off the shelf, or have your metal magician whip it up for you?

 

Keep the updated coming.

Jason,

 

Thanks for the compliments. Your car has certainly gone through a transformation, but its soul hasn't changed.

 

I picked up the heal pad online - Moss Motors if my memory serves me right.

 

The only challenge that I see remaining with my wiring install is getting the right wires from the ECU figured out.

ISIS install going well; however, I have a few extra wires. In fact, the three sets of bundled input wires are un-needed. At some point when I'm triple sure that I will not need them, I plan to cut them off or pull them out of the connectors.

 

The output wires to the system are still backordered. Once I get those and barring any screwups, my Birkin ought to be up and running in short order.

Wiring harness project is complete! I still must calibrate my Stack dash and fix a few minor things, but I am pleased with the results.

 

I like the push button start and not having an ignition key.

Very nice, Mike.

Seats next?

I have a chronic back condition.

The Birkin seat was uncomfortable and had to be replaced. (ultrashield Rally seat with a *Backsaver* pad from Pegasus.
