Carpet, front, and rear seats.

Long before any of this could be installed, I spent many days working on window and top frame adjustments.

You are doing a great job Bill!
Two questions:
1) Did you install the engine assembly by yourself or did you have help? Seems like a lot of up & downs for positioning the hoses.

2) Did you use stone guards for the rear grill?

I installed the power train entirely by myself.

Yes, stone guards were installed as they were originally on all 1964s.
