Tell me what you think....
though it was a cool pic
check out my high lift jack. two 4x4's equals higher car
thought this was funny brought her some with the tires tucking
was not happy at all with my welds on the sfc but they penetrated good just wasnt pretty ..im not good at welding on my back.
all of the interior wiring hard to tell but there isnt much there.
thanks the cowl turned out decent....i believe it was 22ga i got it at lowes our lowes has a decent selection of metal the local metal supplier would only sell me a 4x4 sheet and i didnt need that much.
not off the top of my head ..im at work now but i will snap a pic of it this evening and post it ..it is for a small block ford 302 i do know that
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!
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
