TD5 bulkhead into NAS defender questions

1. Should I drill a new hole in the passenger side footwell for the ECU cables or should I expand the existing one?
2. Does anyone have a list of part numbers for all the wiring clips, screw recipitals/retainers, rivnuts etc.
3. What else do I have to change or should I change before I get to far into reassembly?
4. Anyone have an air cleaner mounting solution? My plan was to run a little KN type cone etc.
5. Where do I get sheet foam to put behind the brackets and stuff?
6. What was the type of gasket I need for the pedal boxes? I do not want to use right stuff.
7. Any reason I cannot just slot the steering wheel bracket to let it slip over the column?

Here is a funny picture for your enjoyment.

I usually cut the air box bracket off the old NAS part being replaced. Fix the inevitable rust and reinstall by through bolting with a 1/2 in spacer so as to prevent the nasty rust trap that bracket can be.

I don't use any of the factory clips or retainers. Rivnuts (Mcmaster carr) fill the holes for the factory clips and stainless "P" clips take their place. Not big on being "correct".

Use marine seal (non hardening, will allow removal) behind the pedal boxes.

Not sure why you'd start slotting things. Nothing hard to assemble here.

Ron, I have the part #'s for the clips if needed.. just got a bunch in. I also use the sealant on the pedals but also use the gaskets like used in the older trucks..

I have an extra air cleaner mount available.

For the column, you can strip it down on a bench in a few minutes.. It will then give you time to clean it up.. Its easy..

Randy, thanks for the bracket and the PNs.

I want to slot the column bracket to avoid drilling out the ignition switch bolts since I already had to bend the bracket to get the column out of the old bulkhead, but I guess I will do it right.

Charles, the garage is full.

Thanks everyone for the help. Any input on the ECU hole or anything else I should be doing now?

You're killing me man. At least get a cheap car port to work under. Or better yet, a cheap shed and put the parts in the shed and use the garage to work in!

Buy a car or two from me and I will have more space.

Sorry, I'm on a concerted effort to cut back myself. Already sold one of my Hondas (which I think was insane to do). I'm going to sell Janey as soon as I can force myself to do so. Having trouble coming to grips with it though

Already have. It was just the one side and not bad. Don't have time to drive 3 rovers. Don't have time to maintain 3 rovers. Don't have space for 3 rovers.

The D90 is an auto so the wife can drive it occasionally, and it's dialed in pretty perfect right now too so I'd hate to sell it.

Sorry for the hijack. Give this man some advise so he can finish rolling around in the dirt.

How long can you wait to sell Janey? I want her back. She'd be going topless though.

Send me an email and we can talk. I'd love to see you get it, especially if it means finishing my dream of going topless. I finally have all the parts too...

I would like to preemptively lick the parts that fall off. I also would like my rusty middle doors back at some point ....

Ok, but the middle doors have been asked for by several others so don't hold your breath. I have plans for the yellow fronts unless Jim really really wants those back too.
