How to order a Custom Firewall and Floorboard

So, you didn’t see a firewall or floorboard listed to fit your car or pick-up!
 
Hot Rod Metal Parts can probably build you a custom firewall and floorboard with a few measurments using these diagrams as a reference. 

Fill in the blanks with the correct measurements and send it back to us.  Remember to give us your phone number where we can reach you between 8-5 pst, just in case we have any questions. We will then give you a quote on your part.
You can print the drawings to the right, add your measurements, and FAX them back to us. Our FAX number is 619-916-3618 

Something to keep in mind...

Firewall Tips

We will make your firewall bigger than the opening. This way, you can trim the outside edge to get an exact fit. The recess in your firewall should be 2", 3", 4" or 5". These are our standard depths. Small block firewalls need to be approximately 21" to 23" in width. Big block firewalls need to be at least 26" wide in most applications. We can make your firewall any width and any depth you like. If you want ribs rolled in your firewall, you will have to let us know where and what shape you want them. Take a look at some other firewalls to get some ideas.

The bottom of your firewall is where the floor and firewall meet. (NOT all the way down to the chassis). We need to know the angle of the toeboard off of the firewall. (See drawing). It should be approximately 45º 

Floorboard Tips

Measure the width of your toeboards (L to R) at the firewall. Measure how tall your toeboards are from the floor to the firewall. Measure the width of the bottom of the toeboards. Measure how far back you want your floor to go.

NOTE: Try to keep the first floor no longer than 30"-36" back. That way we can make your front floor and tranny cover in one kit. Once you have this installed, you have a starting point to measure your rear floor. Measure the width at the back of your front floor
