Dave, we have good news about importing stuff, the government has made things easier a lot, we even have a tax break for things weighting up to 4kg and/or $400.00 and several couriers charge $4.00 per pound from Miami Florida to Ecuador, Summit and Amazon love our country now

Making a firewall from scratch is another option I was thinking, I would love making it out of aluminum but I'm a little short on cash... as usual

And since I tore up everything from my car I definitely will move the engine, I'll do it before I start with the roll cage, seems like the more I move it back the better will be, am I right..??
