Not hot rod related but check this out, working on a 2018 Durango at work.

Under the seat I saw this flat plastic lid looking thing, but it didn't open. I pulled the seat and I had to remove it to get the carpet out. So I removed popped the lid off (held with metal clips) and under it is this box! I am talking it's big enough to EASILY put a six pack of beer in there. The box has the same metal clips in it but nothing there, I have to assume it's for some optional peter warmer or something. So I then remove the carpet and the whole drivers side floor has a plastic cover with that box in it. I remove the cover to see the floor has a giant cavity in it! Is this bizarre or what!

Put the new billet hood hinges on the 72 Chevelle job. As with any billet hinges I have messed with, side to side is way off so shimming a hinge mount is the only option... and its a crappy one.

I thought I was done with all the welding and metal work on the cab.

I was starting the cleaning up under the dash and all to get the primer shot and I saw this, crap, I will get it fixed tomorrow.

Tell me guys, on this AD you can see that there are three holes in the gas pedal bracket, what the hell are those holes there for? The bracket is welded to the floor, why would those holes be there?

I'm confused Brian. It appears to me like the bracket in your hand came from the hole for the Brake pedal. It looks like I can match up the spot weld drill holes there, not at the accelerator pedal.

Could that piece in your hand have held the rubber seal for the brake?

Yes, the bracket he is holding came from the brake pedal seal and there is rust thru under it. The throttle pedal bracket is down and to the right. There are 3 holes in a triangular pattern in it.
Brian, maybe the holes would make sense by looking underneath ? Maybe the holes were for a fixture to hold the bracket in place during the spot weld sequence and then filled with sealer ?

You keep telling yourself you're done because you WANT to be done. Been there, done that and it seems to never end...

I'm sorry John, yes that bracket was drilled out to clean up rust, repair and plug weld back in. That isn't the bracket I am talking about, sorry for the confusion.

The bracket with the three holes is below it at the bottom of the photo, it's for the gas pedal.

I see nothing, no bolt marks, all the other brackets were just welded in without these holes, just odd. Wonder if they were for a lane departure module?
