the cowl panel was and is brutal.  Moisture got trapped under the metal top and the wood structure and caused it to rot out.  Not sure whether the mad bondo-ing was done in Argentina or Alabama.

The sides need serious repair on one side as it was bashed in an 1" or so and bondo filled, the other side needs the side mount arm hole filled, its a big 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 " hole.

Too make sure the curvature to the side of the panels match the door skins I took those up also to him as guides for fitting altering.

Sure looks like a pretty nice job especially considering what they had to work with.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

same shop that did the rebuild of my 34-35 chevy gas tank cover panel.  I covered that 6 months ago in my SHAZZBOTT thread. They , Fawcetts Motor car co, have the skills , the tools and the old school machinery .

I am lucky to have a shop with these kind of skills right in my small town.

The adventure of re-doing this car continues

SHAZZBOTT the adventure continues.

just came back from a friend MIKE CAMPBELL of blackstock Ontario who has a small milling machine.  Left my 34- 35 std roadster firewall cover plate in 1/4" thick aluminum there to be machined.

my 35 coupe has similar idea but its way to busy with a lot of ball milling done in mid 90's.  This one I want a specialized milling pattern I have never seen before.

 I had the firewall plate and the tops of 4 weber carbs air cleaner tops cut out of a 4 ft x 4 ft 1/4" thick T6061 aluminum, cut out using a super high pressure water jet cutter.

After a day or so of cleaning up the edges it will be off to the powder coater to have the parts coated in SATIN BLACK .

here is what I have so far.

hardest part is making the firewall pattern, especially the firewall indentation. Lots and lots of trimming the pattern .

If a place that does FLO JET water cutting is not close by..100 ?? miles, then I would look into having a LASER CUTTER used.

Not sure about a PLASMA CUTTER on aluminum ????  I do know that if your making a pattern for the plasma cutter, then you need to make the pattern 5/16" or so narrower so you get an exact fit.  Using 3/8 or 1/2 " MDF is a perfect FINAL pattern making material , to get a quality cut out.

CAN YOU CUT 1/4" OR 3/8"...?

Have been cutting 1/16" aluminum sheets and suspect that 1/4" or 3/8" wouldn't be a problem, but I'm using an Eastwood 40 Amp plasma unit not the 60 amp version.

Noticed that the aluminum cuts aren't as "crisp" as the steel cuts if you know what I mean. If you ever used a grinder on aluminum you know what I mean - because it's softer it peels over and creates a slag that needs to be removed.
