Then when you re assemble use a good seam sealer to stop the air/water leaks. I use paintable clear siliconized Red Devil from a caulk gun. Cures tough and lasts forever.

30 ford coupe panel removal

A little help with a panel on my 30 ford coupe. Its the panel in front of the windshield I believe would be the upper cowl. The one where the gas tank cap is on. I had a shop cut the tank out and relocated it to the trunk and filled the hole. I now have to remove the panel so I can seal around the new top of the new fire wall. I see there are four clamps underneath and then 12 or so so bolts over the front but is there anything else I have to worry about? I have air leaks over the entire top of the firewall and especially where the two indentations are on the upper cowls sides. Does anyone make the new cowl seals? Any help would be appreciated. bill
