01-03-2011 08:18 PM trans tunnel build 1
I spent my available time this past week building the recessed firewall. I decided against making it removable, and I made it intentionally asymmetrical to provide more room for the clutch hoses/ linkage.

I went through 2 sets of cardboard mock ups and ultimately warped the heck out of it by welding it too quickly. I need to be more patient. Lesson learned, I hope. I made a slice to help alleviate some of the warpage, but it'll need more finessing to make it presentable.

I still need to build a cap in the front, as there is a slight overhang of the firewall sheet metal on the top passenger side. I'll box that in.

01-03-2011 08:16 PM engine mount mock up
I mocked up some tubular bars for the engine mounts and built the revised trans tunnel.

Attached are a couple of pics of the tubular mounts. Now the challenge will be to get these built out of metal.

Once these are done then the two driver side header tubes and be rebuilt, preferably to the back of the mount so the header can possibly be removed without the engine coming out.
