I finally decided how I would finish off the foot boxes and use for a heat barrier. Ended up using DEI's Floor & Tunnel Shield. It is a peel and stick product with a heavy embossed skin on it with a fiber core. Cut it with utility knife and heavy duty scissors.
Will apply some metallic silicone caulk to the raw edges and seams next week and may use 1/2" aluminum trim on top edges.
The aluminum panel for the dash firewall and all other aluminum for engine area have been powder coated just like the frame, dash panel may go on next week too.

Thanks Ben...more to come on the wiring.

Well I gave into installing a driveshaft hoop. Cheap insurance, obtained from Speedmaster, had to remove about 5 inches on each leg to fit the x-brace and drill new holes to fit existing bolts in x-brace. Height is ok for tunnel, but the ends of bolts may have to be cut for width, its going to be real close.

I see you'll be using a Dakota Digital system for gages & instruments.

While working on the cables today, FedEx delivered my Denny's driveshaft and installed it after I finished the cables. No issues and fit perfect, still debating to use a hoop or not.

Finished up my starter cables and mounted starter relay in trunk area. Still need to add a ring terminal for the jumper wire on the starter.

Can anyone enlighten me as to how we are supposed to mount the fan to the radiator? As always the manual is useless :(

With brackets you probably do not have, check with Alec.

The Remflex 8065 has been used quite often on the side pipe flange here. 2" openings with the 4-3/8" bolt pattern for the flanges.

I stayed away from the Remflex as they pushed the headers out far enough to concern me with spacing between the header pipes and footboxes.

Aaron, what did you use on sidepipe flanges?

Here are 3" bolt spacing gaskets. Fel-Pro 1487 or Remflex 3039, Remflex 3035?

Also decided to get the ride height set closer to what is recommended. When the coil overs were assembled, they were put together at full extension and were at full droop while on the chassis dolly. Now that the weight is on the springs and shocks, the ride height is not even close. QA1 has a chart for our shocks for the recommended ride height. Was able to get the front shock ride height to 12-1/4" and the rear at 14-1/4". This is measured center to center on the mounting bolts for the shock. This gave me 7" ground clearance up front and 5-3/4" clearance at the rear. These are measured to the main frame rail. The overall clearance will reduce more later with more weight to be added with the cockpit tub, upper frame section, body work and the rest of the parts.
Pics show the QA-1 chart, 1/4" of thread left on front shock and 3/4" on rears to achieve my current ride heights.

Not much to report as of late. Did finish up the fuel line install. Used nylon braided 4 layer AN hose and fittings from Raceflux.

Thanks guys!

No clearance issue with the front sump style pan or filter, pan is 8" deep. I went with the Milodon for the internal horizontal baffling.
I did not measure the actual clearance to the frame for the filter. If needed, will change out to the FL300 shorter style filter which would solve that if it's an issue.

Rolled it outside for more pics and got to say I'm pleased with how things are coming together little by little. Put away now till I can get back to it next weekend. Next up will be fuel line, waiting on starter, and will plumb the hydraulic line to the clutch slave.
