None, I had existing holes from the folding jump seats. I used a few interior push in "buttons/fasteners" in some of the holes I didn't seal up. on the vertical plane the seatbelt bolts provide some help.

Chemically derusted passenger side seat frame, primed with Procryl, zinc electroplated wear items, springs, and repainted.

And in the category of useless, weird mods, I am switching the floor panels from the stock aluminum to 6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo Titanium plate. UTS is 3.5x greater than 6061-T6, 3x hardness, 74% increase in stiffness. Weight is increased by 2x, offset somewhat by reducing thickness by about 25%.

Reasons for evaluation: Purported extreme salt corrosion resistance, low galvanic potential with aluminum due to robustness of titanium dioxide film (compared to chromium oxide on stainless), and wear resistance since the paint on the aluminum floor plates seem to experience wear from shoes/gravel.

Yes, this is useless

Sonoros - not useless at all! Ti is cool as hell - really neat that you are using it. I just hope you don't cover it up with a mat. But I have to ask - what the price tag on those 2 pieces was? A ti bulkhead would be truly awesome but it would probably cost the price of a running import.

Hey Don,

These were from the same suppliers for our hot airframes. Can't say how much each floor panel would cost as I cut these from 24x32 sheet stock at ~$350 a sheet. You can probably do the math. This is for raw materials. It doesn't count the cost of cutting, sanding, drilling, and finishing the plates.

I guess I say it's useless because nobody would pay the money to have these made. For all normal applications, aluminum is fine.

A titanium bulkhead would be cool but it would have to be in CP. Bending this material will result in snapping it in half (as I found out at Huffs years ago)

Head Gasket is being installed tomorrow. The truck was not blowing white smoke nor was the antifreeze fluid mixing with the oil. However, the cooling system had an enormous amount of pressure. I also had a slight oil leak from the middle of the engine block.

There isn't all that much to a bulkhead. If done out of fiberglass or Carbon you could integrate the lower dash/vent/heating duct.
