Cockpit, Trunk tub permanently installed
« Reply #49 on: November 15, 2017, 10:17:51 pm »
Made a milestone last week:  finally riveted down the cockpit and trunk tubs, and sealed the gaps with aluminum trim.     

   

   

Tomorrow i'll apply seam sealer around the footboxes, then this weekend begin applying heat barrier on the engine side of the footboxes and firewall.

Engine/Trans final installation will soon follow!   Things are starting to come together again...

Yesterday I completed the installation of the radiant heat barrier and aluminum on the firewall and foot boxes.  Now I've reached the point where I can install the engine and trans (hopefully) for the final time, and really start making progress...

Looks good. Looks like the sheet metal is easier to install on the Gen II cars vrs. the Gen I cars.
