Front piece screws to floor and side of bulkhead, then screw cover down to
the floor. I covrred all bits in sound deadening and heat shield. You might
want to trim some metal away from top of tranny so it does not rub. I glued
carpet to floor and cover as the snaps made it look crappy and bunched up
like clothes on the floor.
