A few mechanical odds and ends:

Photo #1 Another view of the completed transmission tunnel.

Photo #2 The battery mount. (This is the area behind the seat and below the trunk floorboard.)

Photo #3 The horn is mounted to the headlight bar. (Hey, you can see me taking the picture in the reflection of the headlight.)

Photo #1 After marking and drilling holes, the surround is mounted to the firewall with 6 machine screws.

Photo #2 I now begin shaping the tunnel panels and attaching them to the surround, the wooden console top and the floorboards. Basically there will be a separate left side panel, right side panel, and top panel and each can be removed separately.

Photo #3 shows the completed transmission tunnel. The pieces making up each of the three removable sections are welded at their seams and the three sections are screwed together.

05-25-2005 08:48 PM Rat - Transmission Hump
I've put off building the transmission hump and attaching the floorboards so I could maintain access to the under side of the car for other installations. With nearly everything completed I am finally faced with the task of fabricating a hump and closing up the cockpit. The job is a little more difficult than it should be because I want to make the hump and floorboards removable in the event I need to access the trans, shift linkage, exhaust, or wiring that will run in that area. I can get at the underside by putting the car on my lift but I want to be able to get at stuff up along the side or top of the tranny without pulling the engine or trans.

Photo #1 I begin by making a tunnel "surround" that will attach to the firewall with machine screws. The surround is made of 2" wide 1/8" flat stock. You can see in the center of this picture the 6 mounting tabs which were drilled before being cut to length.

Photo #2 shows the mounting tabs being welded around the exterior of the surround. Holes will be drilled in the firewall and the screws will go through the firewall from the outside to hold the tabs in place.

Photo #3 shows the holes in the mounting tabs being tapped for the machine screws. The screw heads will be visible on the outside of the firewall.
