Layout done I brought out my angle grinder. I mentioned earlier that I will be installing a new HVAC system and eliminating the vent system.

I will be welding in patch panels for the vent entry on top that will still be covered with the screen and grill so from the outside it stil looks stock.

I am also cutting out a lot of the vent drain pan as I think this is partly responsible for he rust on the firewall. I will be adding back some more metal to maintain strength of the dash and windshield.

Here is a pic of the first round of cuts.

Going to enjoy designing and welding in a new firewall. I wish I had some cool sheet metal tools, but I don't, so I'll see what I can come up with to make it a little interesting.

Also started cutting out some of the old bracketry and cleaning up the top of the frame rails.
