Inside Left Inner Firewall

February 15, 2009, Cut out the rightmost portion of the left inner firewall to see what kind of rust damage was caused by a presumed leaky window. As you can see, major rust damage to emergency brake cable tubes as they come in from the outer firewall and where the left heat exchanger tube comes in from the firewall into the long.

Had an experienced 914 buddy come over and look at the longs. They are apparently in good shape. I will remediate the rust on the inner longs with Eastwood's Rust Converter and Encapsultor using a sprayer with wand. I will then add the frame stiffeners which overlay the longs from AutoAtlanta.

Above is the frame stiffener from AutoAtlanta.

Below is where its resides in the frame.
