Radio alignment pin on the back goes into a hole in the mounting structure to support the radio.

Forward console mates to the dash with a hook and an alighment pin on the right side, as well as three screws

Airbag is installed. The cover was a load of fun. You need to install the pyro unit without the cover, then install the cover through the dash. I had to hook the back (top) hooks then fit it into the dash. There are a set of hooks that are attached to the pyro unit and another set of hooks that grab the edges of the dash opening. Its really fun to get it installed.

I got the car put back together. Took it out for a couple of test hops this afternoon. Was going to post pics of the assembly and final results, but .....

But...

I was watching the Ravens kick butt when I closed the garage door. An old floor mop fell into the path of the door on one side. The door crashed, the retract spool on that side jumped off the pulley and it took me three hours to disassemble the door, lower it so I could get at the pulley and springs, and reattach everything. Then I had to preload the rings, put the door back into the tracks and stop the bleeding

Don't ask!

Pictures tomorrow.

I will offer one comment. I took Punisher out for a short hop, then took Green Dragon out for a warmup and battery charge. Driving them back to back was interesting. The Dragon is a 2.0 with the GMPP tune. It was pick but I kept waiting for it to hit the cam and launch ..which of course it can not do like Punisher does

Garage doors are NASTY! I read that more homeowners get hurt fixing them than any other home repair.

Be careful out there.

Yes, I can believe that! If the damn things done break and fall on you then you break your face preloading the springs.

Here are a few pics. Shows the front drivers side kick panel. The clips on the back, there are two that mate with holes in the door leading edge and one that mates with the side panel structure. The dead pedal then mounts via two studs / nuts. The rear stud / nut is covered with a rubber cap to prevent damage to your shoes and to keep it clean.

I found this - autograph? on the back of the right side kick panel. Anyone have any thoughts about it?

Installed the connectors on the back of the boomarang. It takes three hands but made due.

There are a number of clips around the edges of the boomarang that mate with slots in the dash.

I then began to install the trim pieces around the gauge cluster. Mine come apart in two pieces, the black tunnels and then the outer trim bezel. It makes for easier cleaning. Also, I had to pull the trim and the clear plastic cover over the instrument cluster to reset the speedo needle which was an easy job.

I got the right seat installed. Getting the studs to mount up with the holes in the seat rails turned out to be an unexpected joy! I ended up using a pry bar to get it lined up. Some fun.

This is my helper. A Carin Terrior named Cody. He was into everything of course.

The center console cover has two tabs on the front that go under the forward console and two tabs that lock into slots in the waterfall in the rear.
