That and they need to be in two pieces to get them into the shrinker stretcher jaws. Pic below. Same idea.



Shrinking and stretching the angles must be done with the 45 degree corner at about 80 degrees to get the flange between the jaws of the shrinker stretchers. Then, change the flange angle back to 45 degrees to check the radius. If it's wrong, change the bend to about 80 again, try it, etc..etc...until the piece is the correct shape and the bends are back at 45 degrees.


Fitting: when you overlap two pieces to mark the cut line, the size is not correct. Trim, check, grind a smidge, check again, etc.


Tacking them up and keeping everything as dead flush as possible is time consuming as well.



One corner left, so ________ (insert fist pump smiley here).

John

Thanks, actually, yes, back in the groove.
I gotta go bend me up some firewall this morning at work.


All corners tacked and panel measured up. I'll shoot for a 1/8" to 3/16" gap all around for the weather/anti rattle stripping.

In my best Groundskeeper Willie (the Simpsons) accent:

Well done lad! That'll do.



Mitch had an interesting idea for that cubby cover, gave me one too.

Splice in the tailgate script from an AD truck.


Aw, you know me... can't pass up a chance to crack wise. Beautiful part you made there, so far, and you certainly did develop the cubby concept with grace.

Thanks Laddie.


That script looks pretty good. The purists could have a double heart attack with me cutting it up and then adding some nice Chevy swag all around it....ha....


The PO emailed last week and doesn't appreciate the direction it's going. Oh well. He didn't have me fill a questionnaire before selling it. Sorry Jim, in case you're following along. You will love it when finished, promise.


Got the firewall chunks bent up this morning.

I believe the question of my sanity, which I'm sure you all have been ponderin' all this time, has been answered. I'm nuttier than a fruit cake.


I mean, who does this???

IDJ says to toss in the wiper motor....good idea. How about toss in a helping of cruise control while I'm at it? Need to pull on the top of the gas pedal though, rather than the throttle body, to eliminate one cable. Only want the throttle cable showing.

There's the nuts part. Set up a scaffold across I guess.
Pop off the cover and reach/bend....

Would it be more accessible and worth the time/effort to make a removable panel on the inside ? You could use Dzus fasteners and foam seal tape...

A man with a plan but no bran? No cereal boxes. Perhaps call it a belfry rather than cubby?

Bright thinking. Access from both sides for sure on driver's side

How about putting it all in a crisper drawer or on a lazy Susan. Make it like a merry-go-round in there.

Man who live in glass house dress in basement. Man who want everything hid pay with impractical access. At the sketch phase I figured wise man leaves reservoir hanging out under the cover so you can at least pour.

Pugsy, just keep your far thinking hat on. Horse goes in front of the cart. I missed a weekend of V8 and hence am going Grape nuts. Just got warm enough to prime the carb though.

Accept IDJ ideas at your own risk. No running at the pool and junk.

Gawd no. This whole exercise is to not have to deal with going under the dashboard. Working within the interior of a car is my worst nightmare of all repairs.

It's all silver. Thin aluminum panels as templates. Easy to cut with snips. I will go to work in the morning and cut some stainless.


Access is tough, well, tough for me I guess. This is the insane part. Remote fill may still be in the cards for the master.
