  3. The first link is the flipped firewall ...although they did slice and re-flip the upper stamping. Looks sweet. 2nd link is the big recess firewall. Nice work, like the first link better for me.

    Well after the back n forth fence sitting about what firewall to use on my 31..I finally made the decision to stick with a stock firewall rather than the 32 I had, an aftermarket, or flipping a stocker. So after a trading my 32 to a fellow HAMBER for a very nice 30/31, and after getting all the body parts blasted, we are on the road to completing all the body work. first starting with the firewall modifications. Heres the progress pics so far..still need to finish, but we have a good start on the cut out and the 4" deep relief band...

    Not yet, I could make excuses, but things just move slow over here! I am excited to get it installed, it will fit just right.

    I’ve put 32 firewalls in 5 different 30/31’s so far 3 roadsters, 1 coupe and 1 Vicky. It’s not difficult. In fact I think it’s a lot easier than flipping a stock 30 firewall and while neither the 32 firewall or a flipped 30/31 are at all traditional, the 32 looks like something that would have been done if anyone had really tried to do and looks a whole lot better.

    Here's what I did with mine. Original A firewall outer edge and new sheetmetal flat section.
