    Little advice about that carpet, let it sit somewhere for as long as possible before installing it, and since i know its cold there find some way to get it hot before you install it, it will make life so much easier when you try and fit that carpet to the car since it isnt the most pliable stuff on the planet and when its warm you have an easier time getting it to stick the the spray adhesive

    I welded in bolts on the sway bar bracket, so now the sway bar is attached with nuts.

    Yeah spray adhesive will help get all the wrinkles out when you install it and keep it from sliding around, and remember, DONT trim he carpet more times than not the carpet is too short anyhow, just fold the edges at where it meets the interiors pieces then if you need to go back later and trim it once everything has settled in
