Re: Jans 53

Been slow to start on the body work. Wanted to have plenty of room for radiator and fan so I moved the motor back further than most. This required me to modify the firewall. I like the original firewall and didn't want to change the stock look so this is my solutionName:  IMG_1206.jpg

Re: Jans 53

had some 14g sheet metal laying around a decide to make new front floor board, the original wasn't in as bad a shape as I thought it would be, oh well too late now. Didn't need the battery or brake fluid access anyways so if nothing else it cleans the floor up.Name:  IMG_0604.jpg
