I put a nice rebuilt carb on my 1976 Vandura replacing the blocked original. I found this great exact replacement on Ebay and got great price. Surprised this 2 barrel Rochester was held down by only two bolts so I sealed with some tack. She fired right up ,and after an adjustment of choke she purred like a ...you know what

I missed my weekly work day due to the holiday but it really got me thinking about how I'm attaching the walls. I'm worried the 1"x3" furring strips I'm using will make the wall panels stick out too far from the porthole trim. The books I purchased don't address this issue or even how to properly install wall panels.

When I use the furring strips, it positions the wood above the edge of the walls, but without them there isn't a lot of room for the panel to bite into. I am playing around with a few ideas but I would love some input.

I’ve seen the ceiling furred. the sidewall supports cut to match body profile and screwed to the ribs(floor to ceiling).

Ports can also be installed prior and trimmed into interior.

You're over-thinking it (as most of us do). Unless you're trying to remove the curve from the walls or shrink your interior unnecessarily, there's no need for furring strips.

I screwed 1/4" plywood right to the ribs, then attached my finish panels to the plywood.

So full sheets of 1/4 plywood to keep the curve and then your finished panels screwed into that? Do you have any pics of the process? I just want to wrap my head around it. I was trying to build it the way it was previously which used the strips but I don't like the gaps it is going to leave me with that I would need some metal edge trim to fix.

Thank you
