A bit of heat and persuasion took care of the cowl flange.

Mitch posted some hot rod hinges so I thought I would mock up the design.

Wiper transmissions next. Needed to cut a piece of defogger duct out of the way in order to insert them.
I'll finish the welding on the roto so I can get into a comfortable position. Only one shot at welding these properly. Cannot just smooze Bondo all around after.

Covers ready to go and preinstalled. Notes marked on the covers so I don't forget later.

Mock up of hinge pockets. The strip of metal represents where the fender will be. Looks like some wiggle will need to be added to the hinge arms. Lots of room at the top to attach to the hood.

Made a flange for the defogger reducer on the shrinker. Was curious if I could shrink a flat strip to 2" diameter.

Used some s/s rods to make hose keeper onners.


Used a hole saw to add a 2" hole on the driver's side and put a divider in the factory duct. Should get some good airflow from the VA unit.

Thanks John. Glad to see you following along and it's good to be back at it. I'm starting to "feel it" again.

The plan is to use a 90 brake set up from Kugel and build a cubby into the firewall to house the hydro boost , brake lines and power steering lines.


I can't stand the idea of having all that juice inside the car and crawling around under the dash for repairs. I dropped the body down, cut off an ear from the bell housing and got 2" more floor and 1" more firewall at the top.


Then, I made a template from steel L angles so I could figure out the cowl extensions at the top.

Cowl bits. I took a paper pattern, cut the shape and used a hand tipping tool to fold it.
Still too lazy to bring the bead roller home.

I got the Kugel brake pedal yesterday and mocked it up.
The AC unit fits right behind the master so I believe it should work out as planned.
The cubby will be stainless with a drain tube down to the street.


Added bonus. There may be enough room for the PCM as well as the wiper motor in the cubby. Now, how to run the spark plug wires out of there so I can install the 8 coils as well? Hmm......

Back to the hinge pockets before I can install the new cowl bits.


New hood hinge mock up. Made a stronger hinge.
