Hinge pocket locating pattern. Just flip the tape upside down and apply on the other side.

I checked with the laser level, after cutting the hole. Wish I read Matt's post prior to cutting. I would have thought to check it while the pattern was still on the car. Oh well....a little low.



I cut through the hinge pocket reinforcement so I need to add some 11 ga plate in there to stiffen things up.

Ha..thanks.


The pace is about to hit a crawl as I work thru a whack of mechanicals. I picked up a Vette (C3) master cylinder that fits the Express van hydroboost so I'll be able to start mocking up the "cubby" after this cowl business.

Klooongg.....(light bulb).....if I could angle the tube to get it level, why not angle it at the other end to bring it and the master forward giving more space for the AC behind it?


This also got the rod aiming straighter with the booster.

These corners are a ton of work to get decent.


One little bit left to fine tune and tack into corner number 5 tomorrow. This will give me enough info to start the firewall panels that go around the cubby door.


I'm guessing a 1/8" gap all around for the weather stripping I ordered from Steele.

Pugsy,

Is it the difficulty in getting the length of the chamfered area on the corners to match perfectly with the length of the chamfer on the panel that makes it easier to make the corners in two pieces?
