Fireproof firewall fittings

Here's how I made my firewall fittings fireproof. I took a piece of firesleeve and cut it into 2-inch lengths. Then I cut each piece length-wise until it was a "sheet" about 2 inches by 3 inches. Since it is made of rubber, it stretches a little bit, so I wrapped it tightly around the fitting and the wires and secured them with stainless steel bands.

Total Time: 4.0 hrs.
