Thanks DD I was able to figure these out. They are catches for the rear seat and I was able to install them with the shims. ::thumbs up::

Build update.

Floor pans all seam sealed with Dynatron seam sealer. I bought 3 tubes @ 19.99 ea and wound up only using 1. I plan on using another on the underside of the car too. Underside also needs to be coated with POR 15 when I get warmer weather.

Installed back seat and the metal clips from the last post (for catching the reclining rear seat)

I was bought this eBay room light from Tawain or Thailand I forget. It was wired totally different than the stock light. I had to study the wiring on the original one and then make up some new wiring for this piece to actually work for the car. Very frusterating since it was listed as 1200 part but clearly it doesnt work at all out of the box.

Here is my wiring job. With the help of my father who does stained glass soldering.

Also cleaned up the crud on the dash that accumulated over the last 45 years. Gave a looskie over the wiring and double checked everything. I had some spare LED lights left over from the Vanilla Ice build and decided to put some LED lights in the speedo, temp gauge, turn signal lights, and the tachometer.

Painted the fascia gloss black. Cleaned up the gauges and the gauge faces. Painted the glove box lid to match.

Installed dash and rewired all the wiring and speedo cable in the dash. Installed heater tubes. Heater actually work now!!! (no heat but blows air) I need to replace the heater hoses that are currently bipassed.

Test fit the carpet and seats and seat belts.

Carpet fits okay. Its actually rubber mats not carpet on second thought. Ordered some generic floor plugs off ebay. If anyone is wondering they are +/-40mm i.d. I found some generic ones from China for $5 for 5 instead of the $30 each from Bprojects.

Summary.

Engine starts and runs fine. Electric fuel pump works. Wipers, wiper washer, headlights, work. Brake lights work. Lower front lights work. Side fender lights work. LED lights work on the gauges except the fuel/temp gauge. Room light works

Cigarette lighter does not work
Turn signals do not work when lights are on
Light on temp gauge/fuel gauge does not work
Turn signal flasher unit makes a very loud and annoying buzzing sound.

New seat belts I bought which are US Mil issue Humvee 3 point retractable belts absolutely do not work with the stock mounting points. I tried retrofitting a mounting point behind the rear side trim panels. Still did not work. I must scrap the 3 point belt for a 2 point retractable belt. Pretty dissapointed. Took alot of work and trial and error. Now I also have to pull the seats out which were a pain the arse to install.

I think the turn signals are not working with lights on due to LED bulbs in the dash cluster.

Also the buzzing noise was the seat belt warning buzzer not the flasher. Unplugged the wire from the buzzer.

Took it for a test drive last night and the hood flew up and smashed the windshield. Just my luck.

The standard turn signal flasher is load-dependent. With low-power LED lights, it won't flash. Just replace the flasher can with a load-independent type http://google.com/search?q=LED+turn+signal+flasher&tbm=shop

The only LED lights I have are in the dash cluster for L and R turn. Also for gauge illumination. Is this still the reason why? Even though I don't have any LEDs in the actual rear/lower front lights on the outside of the car?

That's just sucks. Now that you got that out of the way, there's not much left to go wrong.
Car is coming along nicely. Keep going.
