Mark, here is a picture of the tabs that hold the heat deflector in.
Thanks much for the photo David, that clears up a lot. My deflector was missing all together and I need to look into why my heater boxes are too close together for the deflector to fit like that.

I have drilled the holes and found the back wall,bottom angle of the floor pan had pre-installed backplates. An odd finding for a 61. I originally ordered three point harness with the back attachment planned for way back on the side panel. After trying it out with a temporary fixation (prior to interior), I found it awkward and almost impossible for me to reach as the reel is all the way back and if I adjusted it to only rewind partially, I would have a side belt laying all over. I am looking for some attachment that the
belt can go through and stop, somewhere just below the quarter window trim and behind the door. That would, however, put the shoulder belt way too low. For now, I think a lap belt will be just fine. For a couple of years I intend to drive it up into the trailer and then back down and to wherever they point me at the events. Any suggestions Jim

Back at the Notch project. Door Panels, Door threshold trim and rubber, dash recover no. 2 as I followed the pattern derived from the removed cover. It was not done properly as it did not include the ends that wrap into the door frame and end under the door/body rubber seal. I will include pictures as I attend to each stage.
