Post Can't get the Distributor out??

I have a 1930 Model A with a 327 and *****in brand firewall. I need to take the distributor out but can't because the firewall comes over the top of the distributor. That leaves me with either dropping the engine and transmission or cutting the firewall. I think cutting the firewall would be the way to go, but I'M not sure how to do this so that it will still look good when I am finished. Any suggestions?

Question

They didn't leave you guys enough room to remove the cap and rotor and wiggle it out?

Bet you wished you had put a small block FORD in it now...

I didn't mean to be rude...

I can only say one thing, use this product so you only have to get it out once.
