Looks good

Is the arm rest home made or a purchased item?

H Craig, and sorry for late reply (Notifications prob)

Got it off Ebay, there are loads of these particular one's

This was the only type I could find to fit my install....You have to remove inner seat levers and this has to be mounted Dead centre between the stubs, which are Not dead centre to the chassis 'bump'.... it does foul them slightly.... But needs must.

Hi Matthew and sorry for late reply (Notifications prob)

The most difficult was finding a way to secure this lot to the floor as I did not want to risk going thru the tank

by drilling holes for Rivnuts... So I came up with the idea of bolting the safe to a strap which goes under the seat rails

(Very F Fiddly!) But measured up for the strap profile 5-6 times and it dropped in like an OEM part first go!

Your very welcome Matthew!

I have a question, I need to bring a feed from the Battery thru the firewall/bulkhead....can you suggest 

a point of entry that is easy to access from inside? I want to put a power socket on the dash some where...

Cheers Mark! I thought I could get away with (carefully) drilling thru the floor pan, but

going thru the top of the tank would have been such a pain to put right! Ha Ha!

That bracket stretched my head I can tell you! :ranting:

There is also a grommet on the passenger side just below the plenum chamber.
