General Questions / Re: Cockpit tub heat insulation...

Sorry for responding so late to this issue. I like Paul probably overdid the heat shielding. I put the normal supplied heat barrier on the outside of the footbox/cockpit. Then inside I installed Lizard Skin thermal barrier along with a layer of Eastwoods heat shield / sound barrier then will apply the carpet padding and carpet. May give up some in the weight department. I know how hot it gets in my 68 mustang without any heat barriers, so hopefully this will cut it down some.

Aaron,
All I have is the upper portion if the firewall aluminum. I believe Mike and Mark have the full aluminum panels. I glued some leftover trans tunnel heat shield to the back of mine then attached to the firewall with pop rivets. Mine was long enough to where I bent a lip to extend under back towards the rear to match the angle of the tunnel.

I reduce the size then upload them directly to the forum.  I keep my photos on my computer at home backed up on a portable drive.  I use IrfanView to reduce the size.  It's a free photo viewer/manipulator program.  No hosting.  I'm not that techno smart.

When adding photos to your post, you have two options:  1) link the image to an external server (photobucket, el al.) or 2) upload the image here to this forum's server

1)
For external servers there are all kinds of options.  I have my own web hosting account, so I have total control over the images.  If you are using a few service like Photobucket, Imgur, Flickr, etc. you are totally dependent on them. But that's the only option for some.  Months or years later they may go away, or change names. Like Yahoo bought Flickr and screwed it all up.    I googled "Free Image Hosting" and found a good recent article:  https://www.lifewire.com/free-image-hosting-sites-3486329 

The good thing about photo hosting services is they may resize the images for you.  If you are hosting or uploading your own images you want to resize them first.  Uploading directly from your camera or smartphone the images my be 4mb or larger which is way too big.

So to link an external image to a post you put it inside the IMG tags like (IMG) imageURL (/IMG)  ... but with [ ] brackets instead of ( ) parentheses.  Click on the icon in the toolbar to automatically insert the image tags.

The good thing about this method is you can put the images anywhere in the article you want.  With the attachment method, you are limited to four images, and they are attached to the bottom of your post.    Here is an article I posted, with loads of images from my own server account:

http://hurricane-motorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=2501.0

The images links look like this:   [ I M G ] http://www.bobworley.com/images/tcc2017/IMG_6345.JPG [ / I M G ]

2)
The other option is to upload the image to your post directly.  I think this is the best option for most because everything stays right here, in this forum/server.  Just be sure the image sizes are reduced.  You can tell the images that have been uploaded here because they have a caption that is the file name, then something like "viewed ## times".   To upload the image to this server, click the "Attachments and other options" link below.  I am uploading an image with instructions into this post:

TCC 18, Amen to that. But how come I'm at almost 1000 miles and still working on things? Interior is really looking good there Russ.

Mark

If an absolute miracle happens, i'll be driving HM2008 at TCC18 as well .... in gelcoat.  I'll be on a full burn starting this fall/winter.

I use the insert image button at the left side of the buttons above the dialog box. the photos upload directly from my PC (I think). I don't currently know what is going on with photobucket but I've seen complaints on Club Cobra as well. some users picture can be seen and others cannot.
