    I have a Wescott '32 Roadster body.
    Is there any way to mate it to an original '32 firewall?
    I'm familiar with how an original body is "clamped" to the frame encasing the firewall.
    Just wondering if it's possible. Any ideas?

    Hey Skirv. You beat me to it. Here is what I just wrote. By the way, your car looks great too!

    I say go for it. You may possibly have to trim the steel inside the cowl for clearance for the stock firewall, but that should not be too tough to do. Take a look here. Post # 37 and 38 are some good shots. He installed a steel firewall in his glass 3w. I have a stock firewall that I will install in the Kilborn bodied 5W coupe I am currently building. Not at that stage of the build yet, but look forward to fitting it.Here is the link Hot Turkey’s build. He did a great job,to say the least.
