With the body on the chassis, the motor mounted, and the headers, valve covers, and distributor in place, Richie Nogueira cut a section from the firewall. While not as large a "hole" as would be required, it's better to sneak up on the final size then remove too much too soon. A couple of lengths of 6-inch-wide aluminum were then bent up as templates to get an idea of the recess required. These templates were also useful for determining that the valve covers could be removed with the angled sections of the recess in this position.
