My (UK based) Apal was bought - semi-finished - which had some good and bad points!  I'm now going for a 2l Subaru conversion, so the broken type 1 1600 will be removed.  There isn't a proper bulkhead between the engine bay and and the rear 'seat' area.  There is a really useful cubby hole behind the seating area made from plywood, but I feel there should be some division between that and the engine bay.  The Subaru engine maybe isn't as noisy and hot, but should I have something in between?

In real cars it was called a fire wall - neither fiberglass nor plywood would stop any fire.  I would keep that space and use it for a dry space for the ECU and air cleaner.  I'd cover the fiberglass/plywood with some kind of fireproof noise deadener.  I always like the look of machine tooled (swirled) aluminum.
