Drive shaft tunnel

This weeks project replacing the drive shaft tunnel. The old tunnel was not quite wide enough and the front U-joint would rub on hard right hand turns. Obtained some sheet aluminum at home depot and started the process of cutting, bending, tin knocking, drilling and forming.

Screwed down to floorboards and pop-riveted to rear bulkhead and transmission cover.

It really did not need painting as it is going to be covered with carpet.

Also re-routing the radio to headrest speaker wires along the chassis instead of along the floor and the drive shaft tunnel.

On to designing a center console and mocking up in cardboard. I should have enough aluminum sheet left over.
