hi rex! welcome to m&m!
the one thing i would suggest for the interior is to ditch the four seater and go with two buckets up front and delete the back seat passenger concept.....
i have had my 67 DGS since 1978 and quite frankly sometimes wish she wasnt in such good shape.... as i would delete the possibility of two more weight weilders in the back ..... i would pull it all out and mini-tub it to house fat-daddy tires and accomodate no more than one passenger!!
i always tell everyone she is a 2-seater anyway! heh heh......
and.... i just dont know if you would have the head-room needed in the back for buckets.....
are you gonna road-course her? the suspension sounds like you might be going that direction?
if you need to be pointed to some good suppliers.... just say the word.....
also... even tho you would lose the XR-7 overhead dash components... and opera lights....making a "perma-vertible" out of her would be cool.... kevin marti did that with a .....um.... i think a 67 cat.... it is cool as all get-out!!!
keep us posted!
