HOW TO ORDER A CUSTOM FIREWALL AND FLOORBOARD
Direct Sheetmetal can probably build you a custom firewall and floorboard with a few measurements using these diagrams as a reference.
Just fill out the individual forms for your needs in our dropdown menu, or download our form by clicking, (see form here) then fill in the blanks with the correct measurements and fax/email it back to us at 619.588.2925 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember to give us your phone number where we can reach you between 8-5 PST, just in case we have any questions. We will then give you a quote on your part.
TO KEEP IN MIND…
We will make your firewall bigger than the opening. This way, you can trim the outside edge to get an exact fit. The recess in your firewall should be 2", 3", 4" or 5". These are our standard depths. Small block firewalls need to be approximately 21" to 23" in width. Big block firewalls need to be at least 26" wide in most applications. We can make your firewall any width and any depth you like. If you want ribs rolled in your firewall, you will have to let us know where and what shape you want them. Take a look at some other firewalls to get some ideas.
The bottom of your firewall is where the floor and firewall meet. (NOT all the way down to the chassis). We need to know the angle of the toeboard off of the firewall. (See drawing). It should be approximately 45º.
Measure the width of your toeboards (L to R) at the firewall. Measure how tall your toeboards are from the floor to the firewall. Measure the width of the bottom of the toeboards. Measure how far back you want your floor to go.
NOTE: Try to keep the first floor no longer than 30"-36" back. That way we can make your front floor and tranny cover in one kit. Once you have this installed, you have a starting point to measure your rear floor. Measure the width at the back of your front floor.
