I spent some more time preparing firewall parts tonight. First I prepared a doubler that reinforces the firewall where the brake lines will go through.

I marked the centerlines then taped it in place.

After I flipped the firewall over, I matchdrilled the plate to the firewall.

I supported it with a piece of wood while drilling..

After deburring the plate, I marked and drilled the two holes for the brake lines.
