Smoothed firewall...

Thought id share some photos made a little progress on the firewall today!
The firewall will be completely smooth the master cylinder is down on the frame!
You can also see the radiator mounts in the front i made awhile back to mount the rad. on!
My Radiator has to be mounted to the frame and there is no room in there with a tilting front end so i had too fab up some unique mounts never a dull moment i think im going to loose more hair scrathing my head designing all these damn custom peices! lol

Re: Smoothed firewall...

What do you guys think of these Budniks?
Im leaning towards these wheels, I talked to a Budnik rep at the Columbus Good Guys event he said they could get them in 15x15's but i have to check if they can make the 15x4's!

Re: Smoothed firewall...

Great job on the firewall. I have to do some work on mine too (1970 Nova) previous owner decided to clearance it with a hammer to fit the HEI. I was debating on smoothing it out or covering the whole thing.

On the wheels, Budniks are top notch and that picture doesn't do them justice they are like jewels. I had a set on my 61 Skylark project but, had to make a change because I couldn't get the right offset up front to clear my fenders. Make sure you know exactly what you need because they can only give you certain offsets on narrow wheels. I tried to get them to modify my wheels or make me a new set for the front. They coundn't make what I needed.

Have you looked at the new line Centerline has out? They are pretty nice and fresh designs. I am looking at them for the Nova as well and the price is decent.

Re: Smoothed firewall...

Dude that is sooo funny because one! The wheels i have had in mind are the new centerlines orginally and they do make them in the size i like plus there cheaper but i really like the Budniks too so we'll see i vowed i would not buy wheels till the car is in full primer ready for paint in final mock up! so will be a little why'll.
And twooo i have a 72 nova aswell and i did my firewall aswell as a good bit of other subtle mods aswell heres a few pics of it !

Re: Smoothed firewall...

Heres the Wheels i have been drooling over for some time and i seen them at summit in person they are nice and better yet there really pretty light aswell,
Also Im proud to say i have finally have decided on color some have already seen some of these photos but its a Green Tea met. off a new Honda CRV i just fell in love with this color and it still has that vintage feel and look to it! Thinking of two toning the car with an almond off white or a sand drift pearl but the body aswell as the motor color is the green tea,
Thanks for the input later George

Re: Smoothed firewall...

Yeh Dave i really like those centerlines and they have the vintage feel and look to them aswel to, id like to keep with a feel when you walk up to the car that it feels like a classic but in pro street form that will haul ***! like no modern auto meters or sparco seats etc.
Heres how the two tone looks and id like to keep the two tone in the same place as the factory did, It really swoops back the body nicely and compliments the body lines, it goes around the front window and back the sides. like in these pics!
This also gives you an idea of just how much chrome and weight front to back i took off the car lol.
