Beautiful work, what kind of welder are you using? I'm planning to buy a decent welder before starting on the kids future projects... currently using an old blue harbor freight... fine for patching sheet metal but definitely wouldn't trust it for anything structural.

Thanks for the compliments guys!!

The floor height is the same as the factory floor, the pedals are just pulled all the way forward.

I'm using a Millermatic 250, works great with .035" - .023" wire and 75/25 mix gas, just a bit of a struggle welding outside. Most of this was done with a tarp over the welder, the leads off the ground and cardboard blocking the wind (finally got some winter weather in California).

Dont back down now! Plus if the cabin is airtight you're gonna have trouble closing your doors unless you roll your window down every time.. I cut square holes in those bubbles on the side of the firewall for a "cabin filter" and am sealing if off from those louvers/ gills.. those up top will feed my turbo

Had a real fun time trying to spray my corotech polyamide epoxy primer yesterday through a 1.8mm tip, absolute nightmare

Firewall is tacked together. I should be able to pull the engine without pulling the cab, pull the cylinder head without pulling engine and have room for some thick sound insulation. It's not terribly intrusive on the passenger compartment, but I will have to put the AC/Heat Evap in the center console, it's just too big to fit under the dash with the exhaust down pipe on that side.

Are you planning to run an intercooler? I had intended too im still a ways off on decision I might opt for a smaller one, a liquid to air plus a little idea i had, or not run one at all.

Yes, planning to run the factory intercooler, radiator and AC condenser.
Right on same here, cleaned out my heater core box real good, cleaned the ductwork and wrapped it in insulation, and bought a new evap core and accumulator for good measure.. probably should have gotten a new heater core but im cheap and can live without heat for awhile if any problems arise. Im really struggling with the idea of leaving the engine where its at and losing both intercooler and mech fan.. I'll probably never pull over 5,000 lbs

side note these dodge truck guys often complain the AC is not cold enough, 1 guy put valves and Ts on his heater core lines, claims with the valves closed 10+ degree colder air.

Thanks for the offer but I'm planning to use a Vintage Air Gen II Super in the center console.
