    I did a fast patch job to keep the water out.. I might do it again later and make it look factory, but right now I want to have a nice driver and not a showcar I used Red Oxide paint (Lead based rust resistant stuff used a lot in industry) When it comes to rust I think I have been very lucky considering it was delivered new in NY!

      A quiet weekend and I thought the logos could do with a little fresh up.

      The old inserts are very faded and some are missing.

      I remove the old plastic inserts. I take great care to remove all the old glue.

        I'm sure a professional could fit it nicer than me, but I'm very happy with the result. Top marks to: https://www.automotiveinteriors.com as their carpet was well sown and fitted without any major issues.

          Nice Carpet, I got mine from Automotive Interiors as well, and HIGHLY recommend them for GOOD fitting Carpet.

          They were actually able to come up with all the Special pieces to fit a '64 Daytona 2 Dr. Hardtop with Bucket Seats, a Console AND a Power Shift! They really amazed me because they knew what I had and how to make it work.

          This Daytona is not your average, easy to do, Bench Seat, 4 Door Sedan.

          I would definitely get their Samples first though, in my case I wanted Medium Blue, that you could tell it was Blue, but not a bright Blue like their Ford Blue or a too Dark Black/Blue.

              Did those sound insulating mats come with the carpeting? If so, wow! 😲

                Did the car come from Hamburg, New York?

                  See my post #3. Yes, the sound deadening mats come with the carpeting. Here's mine spread out in the sun before installing.

                  The only issue I had was that there was so little clearance between the bottom of the air conditioner evaporator and the top of the automatic transmission tunnel that I had to leave out a little of the sound deadener material immediately under the evaporator.

                      A little modification is needed, but overall very good! I thinned the sound isolation material 50% under the centre console to be able to fit it.

                          Looks great! With a black plate in the rear (normal is yellow/black letters?), why type of registration/classification is the car under?

                            Vehicles built before 1975 and registered in the UK got white on black plates. Since that time, black on white on the front and black on yellow on the back, both reflectorized.
