Thanks. It was cold in the garage tonight so I took a break. Hopefully be back on it tomorrow night. I have a question for you guys. Wasn't there a metal plate on the driver's side interior by the sill plate that covered the wiring going to the back of the car? If there was, can someone give me the length of it? I want to try to fab it myself.
Ask and ye shall receive...
Here's a shot of the two sections as they sit in the car, then the front section, then the rear and one of the profile - I also took some measurements, in millimetres.. This should be enough for you to fab something up.
Front section - 645mm long (centre to centre), 85mm high at rear, 70mm high at front.
Rear section -550mm long (centre to centre), 100mm high at rear, 92mm high at front.
The hardest part was to weld in the patch where the vent was. A friend of mine made up the ring and flat piece. Pretty good fit. The metal was shot on the edge from the top of the brake master cylinder all the way to the drain under the wiper motor. We brazed those areas. Next, I'm going to weld up the holes that are throughout the firewall. Then weld on the cap. By the way, does anyone know the best way to seal the top cap onto the lower cowl? When I removed it, there was a sealer used from the factory.
I'm also chasing an answer to this question - http://www.cuda-challenger.com/cc/index.php?topic=81593.0
How do I apply sealer, press the two pieces together and then spot weld it without destroying the sealer?
