Ok I chickened out on the sound deadening. Brett Madsen convinced me to keep it if it's my daily, so I am. It'll come out eventually.

Since the carpet is out I'm steam cleaning it.

Weigh the carpet once it is dry.
I never weighed my OEM carpet but I'll bet it is pretty heavy.

It is pretty heavy. Easily 15-20 pounds. Still drying though and I'm going to go back over it again, still some dirt stuck in it

I'm interested in knowing how comfy those new seats are. My driver side bottom is getting bad and I'll need to do something about it in a few months.

Once you're driving again, I'll re-ask the question.


Smoke tires, Not drugs!!

The seats are in the car but not bolted down. I've say in them and they fit pretty well. I don't have any driving time yet.

So in the process I noticed the hood latch cable is kinda broken. The cable itself is in tact but the mounting point under the steering wheel area broke.

Other than that all I have left are:
Door kick panels
Finish bolting the harness bar in
Bolt the seats in (they are in location)
Adjust all the straps for the harness

20 lbs is a lot!
The aftermarket carpet is probably around 15.

You should drive around for a bit with the carpet removed. Leave out the console, and just bolt in the drivers seat. That will give you a fair idea of the noise level if you remove the sound deadening.

So i know Dorman parts are pretty much crap. But i don't want to spend $30+ on a hood release cable lol. $18 for the Dorman one on Amazon is seeming pretty good right now. Thoughts?

^How in the literal **** did that even happen????

As far as a fix... that's a seat belt bolt I'm not sure if you'd want to trust a heli-coil there...

Going to go look right now to see if you could put a nut on the other side since my panels are all off.

edit: That bolt hole is under the 1/4 glass, can't see it even with the panels off. Good news is it looks like you could get the same bolt just a little longer and get a nut on it under the 1/4 glass and be ok. Even tack weld it in place so you don't have to pull the glass if you want to remove that panel again.

You could also probably just drill and tap it but I would not do any sort of helicoil.

There should be a threaded removable part in there. I completely disassembled a 96 explorer and the seat belts looked like they bolted to the body but in reality they bolt to a metal piece behind all that that was removable.

If that is true its an easy trip to the JY for him. Just needs to make sure he doesn't listen to ppl who say the roof panels are held on by clips. They're bolted on with a bunch of philips screws under the stripping.

I have an image, in my head, of a tech inspector, at an event, tugging on that seat belt, and it popping out of the side of the car. Andrew is standing there, scratches his head and says "Hmmm, that looks dangerous! I wonder what could have caused that?!?".

It's one thing breaking after another with this thing. I told myself I will never sell it but now I'm thinking otherwise.

Honestly man you beat your car pretty good with all the racing stuff. You get your money worth out of it and the stuff breaking has all been minor stuff that will break on any car. I think it has been a good car judging on what I have seen

Except all the stuff breaking is stupid stuff. Like that bolt stripping, the hood release cable breaking. The power drain on the battery, a speaker is going out (again) ect.....

That is what happens with older cars. If you can't find the battery drain like I couldn't install a circuit breaker cut off with a switch in the cabin and just kill the battery when you park it.

It's been staying alive on a battery tender, just plug it in when I get home. But I'll have to figure something out when I move into my apartment.

2001 Bullitt Build Thread

Took off the glass and I would have to drill a hole to put any type of nut behind that threaded hole.

Well a miracle happened. We cut off the stripped part of the bolt and tried to thread it in the hole and it was able to re thread it the hole while it went in.
