Drain trough in case I spring a leak. Don't want any fluids running out the front and down the firewall.

I turned down an adapter for the booster/bellcrank connection. Added a hole for a cotter pin. There are four connections on the Kugel unit that came with vinyl lock nuts which will get the same treatment. I don't trust lock nuts after seeing several fall off.

Agree on the Ni-cop lines. So easy to work with.

Looks great. Just remember, your leak test is not nearly the 900-3,000# force exerted on those lines in use... be careful with the first test drives.

I've had some luck making tight bends with fine play sand in the tube to prevent kinking/collapsing.

Thanks.
Not worried. Welding is good stuff. I did a line on CURSE without the bonus sleeve. It had a small drip. I found a pin hole because of my poor vision, added a drop of weld and she's good now.

I took the firewall to work to spot weld the reinforcing channels/angles in place.























I used some aluminum scraps from work for temples for the lines chase.

I brought the firewall and cubby to work and had the young lad run tack welds around the full perimeter and the plug weld holes. I shouldn't have even punched the holes as it needed full perimeter welding in case of fluid leaks. That was the point of all this extra work from the git go.


The second pic has a sneak preview of a bearing mount location for the throttle cable.

Roto time is always fun. Although carrying all the bits from the shed and assembling this thing, not so much.
Had to make new arm adapters for the front as it was hooked to my temporary firewall last time I used it.
This allowed bottom access to finish the welding and clean up.

The factory had four mounts close to the front of the body, so I figured I should do the same since the fenders bolt on there.


I started with some 18 ga brake formed channels. I zip cut them to size, drilled drain and mount holes. I used some large rings of tubes as anti crush sleeves.


The mount bolt goes thru a 1/4" thick stainless disc that is welded into a round tube, welded to the floor.
