Awesome dude!

Mine doesnt even have a lower shift boot... one would fit, and probably help with noise but still... They had done an auto swap on my car so its all hacked up in there... id have to make something custom...

if theres enough floorpan area left..drill holes, get speed clips/bolts...shouldnt be too hard...i put a new one on about 4 months ago then when doing my longtubes i unbolted motors mounts and lifted it...and forgot to undo the boot..and it tore..so for the past few months ive been getting fumes, noise and heat like crazy..just did it again couple weeks ago...absolutely amazing the difference...

but all new seals was a crazyyyyy improvement too..every fox should be so lucky to have an owner replace its seals...cuz god is it nice to run longtubes, offroad x and slp lm1's...and have zero drone, and not even really be able to hear it unless im at hard throttle

Got one of my orders in yesterday including a corbeau rear seat upholstery kit. I was going to do a rear seat delete but have yet to see one that I like. Started it today, gotta redo one of the back seats though.
Before and after

And the one on the left needs to get redone

$150, with no directions its actually pretty simple to do. Your fingers will be killing you when your done though. Also, you dont need the hog pliers, just the upholstery staples. I found the hog pliers useless, instead I used needle nose and regular pliers and it got the job done much better

More boxes in today. Received more interior dye, new door panels, 2 gauge pod, phantom series temp gauge, new steering column, headliner, sun visors, 5.0 emblem pedals, floor mats, rear hatch carpet and sound deadening/moisture barrier for the doors. Monday I should have my new front seats and tuesday new radiator hoses so I can install my new frpp radiator. Then I can start ordering parts for the suspension setup.

The last of my interior restoration came in today, my holy grail.......the LG1's. Today I finished dying the dash, ran new speaker wires and patched the rust spot by the gas filler neck. Tomorrow and wednesday begin the installation of everything.
