 I decided to do some work on my 66  while waiting for parts for my customer's car . Making a cut on the opposite side of the pedal assembly so next time i need to replace the clutch cable would be easier and also made a cover for it. Also installing a new fuel line through the pan tunnel and also making inspection covers for them too. I have rubber mat covers to install over these area and will not be seen.

 Thanks
 Frenchy

Looks great, makes me want to take my 64 totally apart and redo it so it looks like one could eat off it again.  LOL.

Hi Frenchy, Looks outstanding, I read you will use rubber mats so these inspections plates will not be seen.  So no Dynamat or sound inhibitors ? I just spent the last two weekends covering everything. Undecided
