More Minor Movement
--- Happy Memorial day to all! What a great time to get a little work done. I managed to fab & fit the brackets I needed to mount my new floorboard & doghouse. Also started on the new dash/firewall. Thanks to the engine sitting so far back, my new firewall is where the original dash was located.
This is the raw metal for the firewall/dash. 14 ga. steel...just a trial fit.
Here it is with some angle added that will attach to the rest of the unit.
And here are the angle iron pieces that I had to fab to attach everything else to (the black material around the edge of the opening).
The floor & doghouse are gonna be a bear to fab as they absolutely MUST seal up tight all around to keep out all the stuff that is never supposed to get inside (exhaust, rain, mud, birds, wombats, whatever...)
PS...just looked out my door and there is nearly four feet of water over the road. Been a really wet year so far.
Hey Kalifornia...bring buckets!
