I've added some additional photos of the interior cargo platform at the bottom of the OP.

Re: Broken engine mounts

My location is updated. Thanks for that advice. I appreciate the feedback! bbonomo, This summer I knocked out a full (3) motor mount replacement, and in the field no less! Following Jim Laguardia's tips it was an easy-peasy operation, if not a little time consuming, but DOES NOT require that you ho...

Re: Swiss Blinker Turn Signal lenses

Jerome, I don't have a need for signal lenses at the moment, BUT I'd like you to know that your efforts are appreciated and I hope you keep after this project. Whether it's the Pinz or other classics exterior light lenses (as well as interior bits and bobs) these parts are becoming harder to source....

Re: 1975 710K Restomod (10yr Anniversary)

Great looking vehicle. I love seeing all the little detailed mods that make it practical and functional for the owner that only come with use and continual evolution. Everyone is different and have a setup that works for them and it’s always interesting to see. Love the paint work too 8) Thanks for...

Re: Stow and Go seat swap

Mr Zero, did you bolt those to the K's factory location? I really like that idea of a cargo deck with those underneath, nice work! Those may be an earlier version of the stow & go, but look great. I love how flat they fold! I bolted in 2 runs of electrical conduit channel that provided a secure and...

Re: Stow and Go seat swap

Has anyone used the Chrysler Stow&Go seats in place of the stockers? I don't know that they're Stow&Go, but I've installed seats of the same design in the back of my K to stow away below my cargo deck. The seats work great and are solid, but haven't considered a front seat install with them. I'd li...

Welcome to the forum, glad you made it here and are now posting Thanks :D .

Re: 1975 710K Restomod (10yr Anniversary)

Thank you! Andre did a nice job on the fabrication of the custom top and external accessories and was a pleasure to work with. I expect that you'll be happy. To be clear, the interior cargo storage platform/bed was designed by me and fabricated locally, in Las Vegas NV. That process is a story in it...

1975 710K Restomod (10yr Anniversary)

Hi all, This month marks the 10 year anniversary of the purchase of my 710K. At a point when my motivation was greater than it is today I thought that I might put together a thorough retrospective restoration thread. Alas, that surge of motivation was spent on other things, so I'll instead share jus...

K Interior Light Cargo Nets

Hi All, I found a couple of cargo nets the work well in the interior for stowing light cargo against the ceiling of my 710K. I assume they would work just as well for any K-model. Both were pretty inexpensive... My visors were becoming overloaded with beanies, sunglasses and baseball caps, often dum...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

I think these are worth a test. I've got my eye on a 24v gasoline model that I intend to purchase sometime in June to replace the factory unit in my 710K. I'll post back with my impressions.

Re: Interior lights

Another option to consider is LED strip lighting. Pics below are from my cargo area, but would be effective in the cab as well. The relatively inexpensive WenTop LEDs that I used can be found here on Amazon . Mine are wired directly to 24v, but they can alternatively be run from this AA LED battery ...
