Firewall Frame

Here is the firewall frame. The plans say to cover both sides with 1.5 mm plywood,
but I'm only going to cover the back side for now. (Actually, the plans are a little ambiguous
here. They say to cover both sides with plywood, but they also show 2 mm gussets along the top, as well. I suppose I could do both, but I'm not sure I see the point at the moment.)

The reason I'm only going to cover the back side for now is because some of those blocks
are for engine control pass-throughs, and I have no idea if they're in the correct place or not. So, my plan is to get everything "firewall forward" mounted and hooked up, and
then I will finish covering it, once I know where all the blocks are supposed to go.

Total Time: 6.0 hrs.
