Did you put Lap Belt (seat belt) attachments in the floor or is that built into the frame of the seat? Was the floor steel? Or did you bolt in the removable seat mounts you removed from the junkyard van?

Belts are OEM mounted to the seats. And I went to the junkyard with a sawsall, cuts chunks of the Aerostar frame out for each mount, then drilled out the 50+ spot welds for each mount, hammered and chiseled them out, cleaned them up, cut slots in Ambo flooring, and through bolted them to the floor.
It isn't for the faint hearted, but it is the end product that I was determined to have. And lets face it, doing these DIY Ambo conversions isn't for The Meek!! lol

Installed the 26 row trans cooler yesterday.

I meant to take pics while doing it, but I was dodging showers, so that just didn't happen....

There is plenty of room in there, but you have to modify all of the brackets and whatnot.
Not a horrible job, if you have a 6-pack. Or 12 pack in my case.......
I would have finished a lot earlier, had my neighbor not been getting in my way and
offering ALL of his advice.... A good dude, though.

I went for about a 45 minute drive afterwards, including the highway, and it seems that it's zone is now 142-150 degrees.
It was upper 80's and soupy, here in Tampa today. Before, I was running a Derale w/fan, and it was under performing. I am now content.
