801 Firewall Placement Confusion

Hello fellow airplane builders, I am confused by the difference in the written instructions and the many photos of the firewall attachment. At Forward Fuselage Assembly section 3 page 6 the written text Twice says “ firewall over hang past the front edge 2-3 mm past floor skin front edge” but the photo on page 6 and section 5 page 3 seems to show the bottom edge on the firewall to be flush with the floor skin? So where is the correct placement? Hope for some help, thanks from Bill of Georgia See More
