I just checked my tool, you’re right I did a 45 double flare.It should be 45 degree double flare. Bubble flares are for metric fittings and altogether different.
Thank you.Unfortunately hub centric spacers aren’t made that thin.
You should be fine with a spacer. Upgrading to longer wheel studs would be recommended as well. Summit Racing has a good selection but 5mm might be the thinnest available.
Thanks Joel, I’m definitely going to put insulation on the tub. I’m more so wondering if everyone is putting insulation on the floor boards where the tub and frame meet. These kind of details or up close pictures tend to be lacking. I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to cover the tub in carpet, paint it, or skin it in carbon fiber. Either way, the transition where tub meets floor always seems to be an undocumented area.Kyle,
Cam did a nice write up on this and you can see where he placed the sound deadening on the tub.
Sometimes it seems like it’s one step forward, two steps back with this project (Okay, a LOT of times). As I’m approaching the last few turns and headed for the finish line, it’s…socalslc.com
That dash looks awesome! You are inspring me to break out the fiberglass supplies.
Hey thanks! fiberglass doesn’t scare me too much, just annoying waiting for it to cure. I’ll be doing something similar to Joel’s seats after I hack them all up, no room in the RHD car.Really nice work Kyle, love the hi-tech look!
Did a few things today. Installed 8in 850 springs. I have another 80lbs with an iron block. Probably comparable to everyone else who has a Graz, super chargers, oil coolers etc, but just wanted a little extra spring.

Mounted and set a location for the powered sub. Practically no room in this area.

Mounted the evaporator. I just used a single metal strap. It goes up the back in between the housing and motor, then around the front. Not the prettiest now but it is rock solid and only one bolt to remove. Just need to add foam tape up top for some cushion and a little extra hold.

Finally epoxied and cutout the areas in the dash for the Holley and stereo. Both should now just slide into the fiberglass surrounds with no bolts etc. I will need to do extensive fiberglass work to fill in the areas I had to chop out.

Last, I started to glass in the door handles areas since I will be using the actuators.View attachment 113239View attachment 113240View attachment 113241
