Doug installed some seat covers. They are red!

Aluminum speaker mounts and sound deadner. With carpet glued in these shouldn't stick out too bad.

Trying to figure out a shroud for the 3rd brake light. Not have any stellar ideas. Suggestions? I can't very well screw to the lip that I have the LED strip attached to.

Grabbed any type of rubber that I thought I could make fit. The larger stuff held up to the window looked large and clunky. Its like a 2" gap. If I make it that large its going to stick-out.

Bus pop-out rubber could be glued on, but didn't shroud the light at all.

Dome light

Bus dome light switch next the the steering column. This car doesn't utilize door contact switches.

Is there any room on the ends of the aluminum strip to pop in some very small rivnuts? If so a small aluminum hood like JB mentioned?
Meh.

I think a lot of thought, time and effort is being put into something that makes nearly zero difference for anyone. :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k but someone brought it up.. and now it's like that annoying fly buzzing around.. :-k :-k :-k #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o right now, it is nearly invisible.. if we mess up that oval window in the back, it's gonna make everyone notice it.. :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k

I'm not feeling it. I could screw into the window rubber with stand-offs or something...but its the look I'm concerned with.

Because of the angle of the glass, it makes the shroud deep and super visible. I stuck some tape up there so that you can see what I'm talking about. Even in black its not going to look very pretty.

=D> =D> =D> , agreed. The ride looks so good right now. The only time your going to notice the third brake light is at night when being used. I daily my oval all winter and find. With today's car heights I get a lot of headlights shining in my face through rearview mirror. So much that I turn rearview at night to keep light out of my eyes. If Dan drives this thing at night I assume he will do the same so the light from the brake light won't be noticed... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

To all, sorry for letting everyone hang. Let's skip the pop outs and messing with the 3rd brake light for now. If Franz wakes up in the middle of the night with a solution, we can revisit the 3rd brake light. I really appreciate all the comments, thank you! =D> =D>

Your doors were pretty much missing everything. I spent a lot of time searching and dissembling spare doors for parts. I hooked you up with nice OG matching glass and divider bars.
