sweating, a
few cramps in the arms and some judiciously chosen Anglo-Saxon out it =
Fortunately the rust was mostly confined to a small hole in the heater =
with a little bit of surface rust underneath.=20

Despite best efforts to preserve the insulation on the firewall and =
the heater it preferred to come out in many, many, many small pieces =
with dust so it's going to have to be replaced.

original would be nice - shiny aluminium firewalls won't look quite =
right on

What about the seals for the connections between heater and body and =
the heater? I guess I may have to be creative with weather stripping if =
else fails - I don't see these listed on Scott's web site or from =
