You can also drill the holes in the fire wall just one step under size, put the fire wall on a flat piece of wood and give the blind nuts a whack with a hammer. That way the barbs go straight into the wood. Also don't buy the cheap soft steel blind nuts from the hardware store, buy the good ones from DuBro so the barbs don't fold over on you. I use a bit of epoxy on the inside flange of the blind nuts before I install them. JB Weld does the same thing as the epoxy.
