went out to the shop. Just too cold to get anything done. 24 degrees inside today. -15 yesterday and 6 this morning with lots of wind. Just too hard to heat the old place up with the wind like that. Took a pic of the firewall cut that I made. Don't know how others do it but I figured I would cut it out with a 4 inch cut off disc. Left a small hump behind so that I can set the new panel against it then I can weld it from behind. Suppose to get back to regular winter weather on Sunday so I may get back out there next week. here is the panel I cut and fitted. Now have to build the distributor pocket and attach the brackets for the radiator supports.
