TRUNK! the final pieces

Think i found my next Fab project, ran across these pics from the 09' Dayton show...love the classic look and was thinking doing it like the rear seats of the 65' with the arrowheads and slanted piping. His engine compartment is a thing of beauty too.

Firewall almost looks like a plastic overlay or something.. I just know I want one, save a ton of work getting the factory one straight, and uses original heater box and doesn't mess with the master cylinder, really cool.

There is a guy who makes that panel. It is steel and fits great. I will try to dig up the receipt for mine (I think it was $125) It covers everything right up to the wiper motor steering column,etc......welded mine on. Eric

We welded a plate in to close the heater box holes. I have a Vintage Air unit which is totally inside under the dash. If you are real careful you can install it with a minimum of body work. I'll dig out the info and post it. ....do you have any more pics of the Black 66??? E
