Craig,

What did you use to attach the vent brackets to the body with? Also, how much body overhang do you have over the vent? I'm using FinishLine's vent and am trying to determine the size for the body cut-out.

Great work, Craig, as always.

Which areas in the interiors of 427 roadsters were leather covered and which areas were covered with carpet?

Cheers,
Glen

Thanks Glen

427 carpet, foot box's, floor, trans cover and the lower rear bulkhead.
I'm not too sure if the doors got carpet or not.
I like to use the leather or vinyl on the doors rather than carpet anyhow, looks nicer I think.
Back of seats get carpet as well.

Dash, seats, rear bulkhead get the vinyl.

I believe the 427 cars were all vinyl but leather is a nice covering to use imo.

Very nice! What heat barrier is that on the foot boxes and how are you holding it on?
