Ray, I'm playing catch up here, but your work is great. When you get done, it will look better then factory. Thanks for sharing and keep us updated on how it's going. Thanks Ray!!!

The firewall is masked off and ready for paint.

Once the paint was dry enough, I unmasked everything and re-mounted the aluminum cover plate.
Here you can see the air gap between the lower part of the cover plate and the floor.

Tomorrow the engine goes back in for the last time.
