AAW Bulk head at firewall

I guess I'm being anal on something that doesn't matter. But I don't really care for the screws that stick out of the fire wall. I may have done it wrong... I guess that's the what the factory did, it's been so long I don't recall.

I'm guessing this is the way it's intended to be. Anybody ever just put in riv-nuts instead on the firewall or welded a nut to the back side and used machine screws?

Re: AAW Bulk head at firewall

Could you take a small square file and make the firewall holes square to where from the engine side a carriage bolt could be slid through the hole. Once that was done the threads and the rest of the bolt is inside the car and then the underside of the carriage bolts square portion lock into the square hole on the firewall sheet metal. You could then slide the fuse block/bulkhead connector over these two studs and thread on some nuts with lockwashers or use nylon locking nuts to pull the bulkhead seal against the backside of the firewall.



If carriage bolts were used the head could be painted or if made from stainless, have the head polished smooth.

Cut them off close to the firewall and put a rubber nipple on the exposed threads Use the number 10 screw 2 3/4 inches long with a nut and washer on either side

Been there done that huh...lol I like the rubber nipple idea, that would have never crossed my mind. My main thing other than the screw head looking cheesy is me raking my hand or wires across the pointed screws..
