Great work by the way!
Well when I look at the pics it doesn't seem like too much will change. The only things I see maybe being an issue is the fuel supply fitting and the throttle cable. The big rubber isolator seems to be a couple inches away from the firewall. So, there is enough room to use 90 degree or maybe even a 45 degree fuel hose. The throttle cable may be an issue but time will tell, if that's the only thing I have to move I would be happy, although I still think there is enough room to snake it around the isolator. The only other thing in this area (center of firewall) is the cabin heat box and it looks like it will clear it no problem if you count the rivets on the firewall.

No problem and thanks for the kind words! Broken records sound good sometimes too.
I don't know about the showplane capability though. haha
