The door skin from the extra Malibu door has a nice curve to the sheet metal that works well for the pieces I need to finish the bottom of the A pillar.

I used the cardboard pattern to cut a couple of pieces from the door skin. A while back I made some small anvils from some pipe elbows. I used one to roll the edge in the side piece; the edge will meet match to the windshield frame. I also used a dolly to form a 90 degree edge that will form the gap with the door edge. I also used the English wheel to crease the portion of the piece that will cover the gap between the windshield frame and the fender.

Started working on the intersection of the A-pillar, the fender and the door with some Cheerios cardboard and blue tape.

Capped the open ends of the roll at the top of the firewall. Finished the curved ends for the cowl cover. I am really pleased with the result. I guess a year invested trying to get this right was time well spent.

Mounted the hood sides to check the alignment with the cowl cover and trimmed the cowl cover ends to fit. I'll close the ends of the cowl cover with some angled pieces that will cover the bolts that attach the hood sides to the body. I found a curve that almost matches the cowl cover on a bent Malibu door from the scrap pile.

Tacked in the new firewall today. The cowl cover needs some work to fit to the firewall properly as the firewall ended up a little closer to the windshield than I had expected. All was going well until I decided to slice my finger with the cutting wheel on the grinder. Maybe it will feel better tomorrow.
