How much clearance is required between the aluminum panels and the body where the bulb seal gets installed?
Also, which other parts of the bird cage get insulation and what kind/size of insualtion? I was thinking just about every part of the chassis or birdcage that contacts the body would need some sort of insulation?

Thanks,
Bob

Bob,

I left at least ¼ inch of clearance for the bulb seal. I also added pieces of aluminum where the gap was too big for the bulb seal to seal. I used bulb seal all the way across the back of the interior, all the way across the fire wall, from the back panel down the trunk pieces, across the back of the trunk and down the pieces of aluminum next to the radiator.
