I haven't had any luck searching the forum for this, yet... does anyone have photos of the sheetmetal in the front of the cockpit? I can find lots of photos of the troublesome rear part, but nothing in the front. I'm trying to figure out the "right" way to mount the u-shaped piece that goes at the front of the transmission tunnel. I've figured out the best fit for the transmission tunnel top is over the floor panels, but I can't figure out if the front piece should go over everything, under everything, or exactly how they should all meet. I have the FFMetal footboxes, too. None of the parts line up exactly right and its going to take some persuasion, so I don't want to persuade it wrong. :D

I made a small mod in the drivers foot box that you might be interested in. The stock dropped floor shape has a sharp step right where your heels would be, so I made a filler piece to form a 45° ramp there.

This is the only picture I could find of the step filler. Not a real great shot but it's a simple piece with a 45° flange.

Thanks. Just one more thing to add to the ever growing list.

Be aware that it will screw up the carpet fit, as the flap that bends down into the sunken area will now be too short. Which I found out later.
You have to make a splice with the lower piece, and I ended up putting a bit of black silicone across the seam to make sure it wouldn't peel up.

/ultra black silicone is really charcoal grey
//gotta do the mods while you have the chance, especially on the body shape
