 The shop needed a serious douche job after the chain of cars I've run though it while #476 was out for paint. Roll Eyes The floor just hadn't quite dried when she arrived.
 I hope she's not jealous.......
Yes they wet sanded and buffed it, wasn't my preferance, but I guess it'll be ok.

In 476's glory days it had a Paxton. With the impossible braking system, it made for a scary ride over the hills of San Fransisco.. 
I therefore speculate the holes are for one of two possible reasons.

1.Drain holes for the occasional wetting of one's self, or the petrified passenger. Shocked
2. Drive shaft loop installation where someone had a problem locating the holes.

  Mostly been cleaning dust and overspray.
 Reinstalled the original windshield, didn't even ruin the original headliner!
Installed the Canuck built fuel tank and sending unit.
Fitted the 1/4 extensions and trunk lid alignment.

Blacked out the area behind the brake scoops, then mounted them with pop rivets.

 This car retains an amazing amount of originality throughout. A very well preserved example.

Shasmu,
Is that the Spectra Premium fuel tank?  The old American Designers?
If so, is it any good? I'm might be looking for one.

Supersig,
Yes this is the Spectra fuel tank. It seems well built. The drain plug area of the tanks body is hexagonally formed.
 If I recall correctly, the American Designer's tanks are different in that area. May be closer in appearance to the original than the Spectra specimen.
Before laying the tank in place, I sealed the body opening with a gray dum-dum putty tape.

I've been cleaning and detailing the interior floor areas.
The floors are super solid, but a little minor surface rust on the left front was wire brushed and a spray type rust converter applied.
 After allowing a couple of days for it to dry, I resealed the front seam of the lf floor with mastic, in the original fashion.
