Could someone please post a picture of the floor area and installation of the pie pan dash shield on a 21 with wooden firewall/dash.

Is this what you're talking about? You seen the metal thing just under the coil box and between the upper floorboard arms. The sometimes a round clearance area on the left side to clear the steering column.

I forgot to add...To clear the steering column mounting base.

I have one too for a 1920. Is it nailed or screwed into the firewall?

I have one. I just finished making replacements for my 2 upper floor board pieces which had broken up quite a bit where the cutouts are. The new ones are passable for sure, but now I'm excited to dig up some hardwood and build new ones from that. The ones I built now are from 1/2" clear pine. The larger floorboard is hardwood. It needed a mending plate and a couple wood strips screwed to the bottom.

I also have an engine shield. This required some additional beveled cuts on the floorboard. I haven't got into it, but I cannot get much of a tool on the furthest back spark plug and head bolts. The engine shield may need to come off if I have to do much there.

The black duct tape is covering holes that I have no idea why they were there. Also, I use a floor mat to cover this so it's really more structural than visual. Would be nice to do all new in hardwood. Plus a fun woodworking project.

Looks like auxiliary transmission or a foot feed location.

I have a 21 Touring. I used some small oval head wood screws to attach it to the wood firewall. Mine looks pretty much like Martin V looks like.
