I'd be a little concerned that when it expands, it might push the firewall away from the foam front of the plane thus potentially messing up the alignment of the firewall.

But maybe that's why you secured it with tape to hold it tight to the fuselage. That way the expansion of the glue will come out around the edges.

Any others used another kind of glue?
I did use the tape to keep the firewall in place while the glue dried/expanded. It worked pretty good and didnt allow the firewall move one bit.
