shaved fire wall & engine bay

I just pulled the motor thought I would share what I got going on alongside my engine build.




cut all the studs off and all the brackets
I've also got stainless brake lines for the whole car & am moving the proportioning valve inside the car I think or somewhere less noticeable
sorry the images are so large I been using Facebook to upload the images

did you weld all that, or did you just bondo it over?

also, facebook SUCKS as a photo host. Flickr or Imgur are good options.

I bondo'd everything but with the bigger holes I put hardens like steel tap. I ran out of gas on my welder an was feeling lazy since my cars far from perfect I'm okay with it, and it will be better then it was

I really hope all that doesn't crack or pop off when you go over a bump for the first time. I understand doing it - I've got a long term project with a sheetmetal firewall and even more shaved than you have - but I don't understand doing it the lazy way, especially when it doesn't take that much longer.

i really apriciate the advise i went around and poked all the easy ones out that would of been a real pain in the ass! What do you think about fiberglassing the holes or the hole firewall? i peeped your build thread your engine bays super clean!

fiberglass and metal don't mix. Fiberglass holds moisture next to metal and makes it rust. You have a welder, get a gas refill and do it right.

or buy some fluxcore wire and forget about the gas. No need for a gas mig weld bead when you are just going to cover it up anyway.

Here is how mine sits right now,

It still needs a few spots filled then a little grinding cleaning up. After that there will be no need for any fiberglass, just some spot putty/filler.

OKAY! I bought gas and will be filling in the holes threw out the week thanks to everyone. I really just had a job to go do and need to get gas anyway so it all worked out. Now I can finish tig welding my 3in stainless steel intake

Thumbs up

I still a little ways to go sanding the rough areas but it has come along ways from where it started! It's not the final color, most of this paint will be sanded back off before the final primer paint n clear, it's just there to show the hi n low areas.

that's looking great, man. Just remember to take your time with the bodywork. if you don't, the stuff you didn't do will bug you every time you look at your bay, but I'm sure you already know that
