After glassing the bulkhead it was time to build some kind of heater/de-mister ducting for those cold wet UK summers.
A Bedford Rascal donated the heater fan and matrix which was then modified to a smaller size making life easier to fit. The unit will blow from it`s 3 speed fan through the matrix and into to boxed area it sits on. This diverts the air up to the screen vents. As yet there is no lower vents but these will be installed by simply cutting a hole into the sides of the box and fitting vent outlets which have adjust-ability built in. The unit will not have any controls to divert the air, only hot and cold adjustments and fan speed.

Card templates were transfered to hardboard shapes and then held into position with gap filling adhesive. The surface of the hardboard was covered with parcel tape to stop the resin from sticking to it.
Fibreglassing can now begin.
After fibreglassing the hardboard will be removed from the engine bay side (when the body is off the chassis) then fibreglass can be laid on the engine side of the bulkhead. The whole bulkhead will then be smoothed ready for paint.

After fitting of the brake pedal top, the throttle pedals position was determined, brackets fabricated, welded into position and checked for comfort with the steering column bolted back into position.
