Body On to Test Fit Firewall

It was time to fit the body on the car to make sure that firewall was trimmed properly for the body to fit over the "bulb seal" that would help to seal the cabin from the engine compartment.

I asked the question on the forum how big of a gap should you have, and the answer was 3/8".

See the thread here:

How much gap between firewall and body?

After running a sharpie at the high points and taking the firewall to the band saw, I trimmed off the correct amount to leave a nice gap for the bulb seal.

Having the body on the car was great to see what it will look like.  It is great to see the progress!  Why did I only take photos from the one angle??
