Im impressed, great to see sheer grit and detirmination shine through and pay off, you must be wrapped.
And congrats on the upcoming birth, but believe me, for the first 6-8 months all you will want to do after 5pm is get as much sleep as Bubbs will let you.

Always happens some of the factory paint/sealer can sometime really really stick and then in other places you only need to blow air over the location and the stuff is removed.
Not sure who it was, all I know is it was near the z factory, the job was ok but a couple of bits were missed here and there.
The media will keep coming out of the car. My zed was on a rotisserie and it was rotated/vacuum/rotate/vacuum etc and I still get grit out of it. I too did the firewall wiper box repair - cut until we got clean steel = almost one side to the other. Just make sure the pedal box and heat box fit easily before you weld it for good. We forgot to check the heater box so I have had to get the rubber hammer out and so some minor bending on the heater box and a little on the wiper box I guess the floor of the wiper box moved down just a few mm's
