Cabin Heat Box

I wasn't exactly sure where to put this page. Obviously carb heat will go here, and this is very similar to that, so I decided it should go here, too. I made this out of scrap .025 mild steel, and basically copied it directly out of one of Tony Bingelis' books. Since it is mild steel (as opposed to stainless), I decided to powder coat it the same way I did the engine pushrod tubes. The flange pop-riveted to the front of the box is aluminum, however.

Total Time: 15.0 hrs.
