Yes, as mentioned the "wavy washer" is what was removed, or punched from the firewall.

I've been trying to figure out how to set the switch up in my car....

What's the deal with yours, the contact hits the floor when the pedals depressed all the way?

There's a plate welded onto the pedal that holds the switch so the button contacts the pedal stop with the pedal itself. I'll get you some detailed photos and drop them in your build thread.

Something to think about: with the switch activating the 2-step when the pedal hits the stop, I've seen tach replays where the rpms jump before the clutch engages. To prevent that, I mounted my switch from the column so the pedal arm hits it at the top of the travel and wired it normally closed. I just had to teach myself not to leave my foot on the pedal after launch...made a few passes in the beginning where the thing wouldn't rev past 5800! Haha

Good idea.

Score! I thought I had some filters somewhere, took about 30 minutes but I found them hiding in a box.

Last week didn't go as planned, meant to get the seat finished and the headers done... didn't do either, too busy at work, so the weekend work plans were upended. Also did very little Saturday so Sunday we decided to do sheetmetal, which I wasn't looking forward to and after a day of it, I hate it even worse. Started out painting the cowl then on to sheetmetal.

Yes, but I think we'll work on something else next weekend other than sheetmetal, after one day I need a break. For some reason it frustrates me

Yes it can be a very frustrating task as each piece affects the next in multiple ways. Unless everything is marked/scribed or drilled with a locating hole it is a very complex jigsaw puzzle.Take your time and it will come together.
