Do I need to weld tabs to hold fire wall to fuselage?  After looking at page #9 of my XL drawing package I can't find any reference to welding or screws to mount the fire wall.  Do I tack well it?  Use Tinnerman screw plates?

Mine is just stuck on with friction around the mounts and silicon around the perimeter of F1....

Thanks Bob,  It had to be simple as friction and silicon.  

I tried to follow the link you sent on the instrument panel but it didn't work.

YES, Steve....Beautiful! 

But, I believe the LX doesn't HAVE that V, or does it?? May make it a bit more difficult...

Steve & Bob thanks, The XL does not have the "V" but the concept is helpful.  Steve,  I noticed some yellow paint or something in your engine mounting spools.  Should I use some silicon or axle grease in those spools to prevent rust?  I assume the rubber mounts are impervious to engine oil or grease.

Charles:
On the XL I would make a 10/32 tapped hole in the field of the sheet steel in each of the sta 1 four corners (Sheet 8A engine mount) to hold the firewall sheet in place...Use stainless 10/32 machine screws with nuts to jam/lock the assy/fasteners in place... Assembling the spools with some silicon lube would be good...
