Focus ZX3 from Frisco, TX would like to meet pals

I have started a major project of "remodeling" the interior over 2 years ago, then it got kinda suspended, I drove a half-empty car and all the pieces were collecting dust around the house. Now, I'm finally getting it finished...

It's been so long since the car got torn apart, I have some "mystery pieces" left, and I have no idea what they are. Luckily they are just a few.
Also, got a couple of mechanical questions.

Would love to get in touch with other focus fans that live in my area (I'm in Frisco, TX). Maybe you guys could help me out!

How do you like it? It wasn't too hard to spray paint all the interior pieces, but now I'm starting to wonder how long it would last. :)
Anybody has experience with the interior?

I am not very good with picture hosting, someone recommended this hosting place, and it's the easiest for me. I have reduced the image size, now you don't have to click on it. :)

That, is, unique.... And I like it! Never seen that green on a focus before either. Did you repaint it?

Yes, the car was painted. When I was in Italy in 1999 I fell in love with the color of a green Nissan Micra. Ever since I got the Focus in 2002 I wanted to re-paint it. It was a fairly nice charcoal gray, but but all cars I've ever had, either were similar color of green from the beginning, or were painted. So... Finally, in 2009 I did paint this one. Didn't want to spend 3.000 bucks on a "really custom" paint job, so I spent 3 days looking for a color code of the vehicle I've seen, found a Nissan colors catalogue and had the Focus painted at Maaco. It cost like $500-600. They did a fairly good job.
I am very happy with it.
If anybody is interested - the color code is JT0 (the last one is a "zero", it's important). Maaco can not look up what color corresponds to a color code without mixing a sample, but they have factory codes for all possible colors in the computer and can mix them just fine.
The worst, that the 3-door Focus never came with parchment interior like a 5-door, and for 8 years I hated the gray insides. Finally, the car is what I wanted all along.

It would have saved me a lot of grief if the 3-door Focus were available with tan ("parchment") interior. Darn.

Anybody knows if there is fine-tuning involved into putting rear seat back in?
After some grunting and cussing I've put it in, but it wouldn't latch on the metal "loop" thingies that are on right and left on top. Also, seat belt mechanism in the middle doesn't seem to work.

Now, anybody can tell me what the heck the "mystery parts" below are?
The interior has been torn out over 2 years ago. I had everything marked and separated in baggies. Those parts were marked as "Seat". I figured out all the rest, but ths. except this.

big pieces: They go over ends of the rails where the set slides back and forth.


The smaller pieces, I don't know.
