08-01-2009 11:00 PM Dash and Pedal Mount
The pie cuts that had to be made in the middle section of the dash were welded up. I didn't grind them yet. I was tired of grinding welds. It will be there the next time I work on the car.

As with everything on this car, two steps forward and one step back. The brake pedal mount interferes with the lip on the bottom of the dash. The section between the black lines will have to be cut and removed.

08-01-2009 10:53 PM Brake Pedal Mount
The rear mount for the pedal mount was finish welded to the dash cross tube. The excess was cut off.

A section of 2 x 3 tubing was cut and fit to the tabs created to raise the pedal mount. It was welded in place.

I still may pie cut and weld the pedal so the center point matches mid travel of the pedal. Time will tell.

08-01-2009 10:50 PM Firewall Holes
My count may plus or minus a couple, but I counted 47 holes filled. And ground.

There are still 7 holes for the firewall pad attachment. Instead of pushing the plastic pins out into the engine compartment, I am thinking about rosette welding bolts to the remaining holes and then securing the pad with plastic wing nuts.

I also left the hole through which (I believe) the e-brake cable will pass.

I am glad the lion's share of this is done.

It is hard to tell from the photo, but twelve holes were filled tonight. There are fourteen or so yet to go. The firewall should be filled tomorrow.

07-30-2009 08:50 PM Air Compressor
My Campbell Hausfeld compressor is in good shape for its age. But the pump is showing its age. It won't keep up with any of my air tools. It's noisy. And it is leaking at the shaft seal. Since I believe it is a splash and pray system, blow-by pressure is probably forcing the oil out. I got a HF v-twin to replace it. Spent some time tonight mocking it up to see if it will fit and what other parts I need. Got some good info from Vince (302 Z28) and jaguarxk120 on the BBS in the Garage - Tools section. Thanks guys.
At this point, I am fairly certain it will work. I have to drill 8 holes. I have to buy a pulley, set of belts, and some fittings. I will have to limp along with the old pump for another week or so.
