Interesting that your carpet isn't split going from the shifter hole towards the dash. A few years ago everyone "guaranteed" me that they were all sliced for installation. Thought it was odd... Great pics your posting.

FOR CONSOLE CARS YES... this car has no console.

James what adhesive did you use to reattach the dash pad cover to the hard plastic backer ? Any tips or tricks in doing this....thanks

I used body panel adhesive in a 3M automix gun.
You have to heat the backer up to flatten it - it is POLYSTYRENE - if you burn it smells like a MODEL CAR so I know it's PS.
To flatten it, I used large clamps and a flat piece of 1/4 which I drilled holes in to accept the studs.
After it's back into the correct shape - 
Then you heat the cover 200 deg or so and stretch it back over the lip using duck billed sheet metal pliars, gluing it and clamping it into place for the next few hours.

Honestly it is a PITA... I have done a 2nd gen one as well and the best way is to mount it in the car with the windshield out and everything gutted and shape it that way.

A couple more parts pictures - the engine mount "lift kit" or "recall kit" bolts were mentioned a couple pages back. Here is a close up of the bolts, this being a recall installation I cannot guarantee that the correct parts were used but I'll let you all be the judge.
