So here I am, bashing the firewall into shape. There is a support bar underneath the steering column that makes for very, very hard bashing, so I crawled into the passenger compartment and cut a section of it out with my angle grinder.
Here is the progression of the bashing and the start of the bondo to leave a nice shape.
I've got the car entered into the Warbirds, Wings and Wheels show this coming Saturday at the Estrella Warbirds Museum at the Paso Robles airport. I need to get this smoothed out, primed and painted to be ready. I'll take it over on the trailer and get it in place in time for the start of the show.
