  • 31st March 2012 – Fitting the heater box

    Next job on the list for today was fitting the heater box that arrived from Gerry a while ago. This is mounted to the rear side of the bulk head behind the dash. We decided the best way to mount it was to rivet the brackets in place through the bulkhead panel from the engine bay and use the same 5mm rivets we used to fix the heatshields in place.
    We wanted to mount the heater unit dead centre so all the rivet heads lines up, but we had to ascertain the locations to drill the holes for the 2 heater matrix pipes that poke through into the engine bay. So we made a card template of the rear of the heater before lining it up dead centre then marking and drilling the holes. We fixed the heater unit in place using 2 rivets either side. We also added some foam sheeting behind the unit for extra padding.
