The body shell is bare. What order should I install the following parts?
Heater Air Box
And I will also be installing Dyno Mat. Should that also be installed before anything else?
As always, I look forward to your expertise and recommendations. Thank you.

Is Dyno Mat sound proofing? If so, it really depends where you are putting it, but I'd think you should avoid it getting in the way and would install the wiper and the pedals before it, but the heater after. I say that, as, if I remember correctly, felt goes under the heater over the transmission tunnel, so you might do the same with your mat stuff.

Test the old wiper motor before you install it. I learned this the hard way.
If you are going to put in insulation or Dynatape, fit the insulation into the pedalbox footwell area before you put in the pedal box. Saves some fiddleing around the pedals. I still havn't learned this.
Do not over insulate the area under the heater box, it raises the heater which throws the alignment off of the clip that holds it in place. I learned this the hard way.
If you powdercoated the pedal assembly, sand, clean and grease the end that goes into the pivot tube. Otherwise it may not fit and pivot freely.
Glad to hear you are back on track!
