Looking good but check the position of the uprights that make the start of the trans tunnel

yes as vmax said the 2 central uprights are wrong at the bulkhead location, where you have them does not leave enough room for the pedal box
but good progress though

hi, I lent my book to a friend so cant check the book but I know a few folks have done the same, thinking it lines up with the engine bay ones, if you want I can pop out and measure mine for you

hi Chris just popped out and measured mine
measuring from the outside edge of the outer upright to the trans tunnel edge of the inner one is
driver side 305mm
passenger side 245mm
hope that helps and makes sense
Gary

haha don't worry I don't need any excuse to go and fiddle with her and its no problem at all indeed if there is anything you need me to check just shout
I have added a picture that shows mine
point 1 your pass side may be correct and if you did that first and then mirrored it , that could be where the confusion came from
point 2 do NOT put the steering colum bracket on the bulkhead as per the photo that is for a sierra one and if using an mx5 one just follow the Saturn plans for that bit
