Firewall Is In!

When we install the fuel cell and relocate the battery to trunk, the rule require a trunk firewall. After installing the metal , the seams were sealed with seam sealer.

Speakers are not fire resistant, so they had to go.

With the interior was out, I took the time to clean up a little surface rust.  After knocking down the rust with a red Scotch-Brite pad. Then I sealed everything up with POR-15.

After a little dry time, we put the rear deck, carpet and back seat back into the car.
