That is going to be one of the coolest rigs ever to roll Norwegian earth, and the first on Hummer portals (except on hummers) I can't wait to see it! :)

On the firewall I'm not sure: I believe you either have to close the gap all the way to the sides, OR have a side wall/fender that closes in the engine forwards. I'm sure someone else will chime in on this.

In the rear you are required to have a wall between you and radiator/fuel cell, and an edge or top lid (one piece) that will save your helmet from filling with boiling water/gasoline when lying upside down. You also need full floors, and no hoses inside cockpit, only tubes (steel/copper etc) which are one piece through the cockpit. Most of these are intended for safety if a leak of hot oil/water should occur in a rollover.

how can i find out exactly what is needed in the rear? i think i might have problems with overheating if i close tomuch of the area between the seat and radiaator

They are mainly based on Volvo parts...

To meet the regulation you really have to have a wall that prevent all leakage to reach driver or codriver..
Antother problem will be you insurance and lisens, this would be discuesed on a meeting in January...
