yeah I know the pedals box are the same, just need a close up pic on the side of how it's mounted to the firewall, so I can compare it to a e series firewall.

All good, just need to see how it mounts to the firewall, pretty sure I'll need to add a bracket for the top two bolts, and the brake booster bolt holes, will see once you post the pics etc.

cheers.

just taken the tray apart (again)was not to happy with the powdercoating i got done last time ,he even agreed it was not the best .he said he will do it again for small amount of money .its a lot of work (lots of bolts) .it will be a lot easier to fit battery box just above muffler closest to rear of cabin .going to make a box up out of aluminium and get it welded together .will also be easier to get to fuel pump and change it over to the bigger pump .
