Looking really good so far. I love the way you did the cowl. Thats exactly how I think I am going to do mine. What gauge steel did you use? Keep the photos comming!

Do you happen to have the part number for that distributor? Does this setup require any special gear on the dizzy?

Perfect, that explains enough. I know it calls for a small block ford dizzy but I wasnt sure whether or not it was for a 302 or 351 since they have different deck height.

...last question....for now lol....

I started cutting out my cowl today, and I was comparing the way I am doing it too yours. My question is...when you welded the new flat panel back in on the firewall, did you weld it above or below the stock seam? I dont have a photo handy because I just got to work, but like about an 1" above the HVAC cut-out all across the firewall there is a body seam. I guess I am asking did you cut above this seam or right on it to weld your new piece in?

If you have a photo of just the opening from when you cut, that would be perfect!

here is the part number

Click the image to open in full size.

the way i did mine was about 1/2 to 1 inch above the bend behind the cowl the only issue i ran into was when welding neer the factory body seam the sealer was heating up and causing my weld to become contaminated....doesnt hurt anything but does make the weld ugly
