Short story is my rubber padding on the firewall is torn in different places and water was getting between the pad and firewall.
I see some rust started on the firewall.
The pad I have is not worth reinstalling.

How much do we really need this rubber pad?
Is it only to mute engine noise or does it protect from fire hazard?

I'd really like to be able to smiply respray the firewall body color and leave it bare.

What are your thoughts?

When I did my engine swap, the rubber insulation was a mess and it was a pleasure to tear it off. I added some pads which I cut out of standard sound dampening material. It probably doesn't make any difference, for the noise. Only one patch (silver) is installed here



I would say, paint the firewall the body color. If you want sound insulation, put it on the inside. It's probably not easy to get pretty, but who will look there ?
