Progress!
When my son redid my firewall, I was the "copper holder" on the opposite side of the holes while he filled gaps.

Are you just using a normal heater box instead of the a/c heater box ?

Not sure if the heater core water pipes are in the same spot from one to the other
Was just wondering why some of the holes were left not filled in

Yes Sublime I am switching from AC to just heater. Theres one more hole to the left of that one that he needs to drill back out. I think there will be a few stragglers down low that Ill need to plug but for the most part all the AC holes hot patched.

Were gonna blast the engine bay and cowl. Here she is getting the k-frame pulled. Anyone have any good links for a k-frame resto? Seems fairly simple but I like to see what other people are doing.

We are trying to save money where we can. I figured it wouldnt matter a whole lot. Its going to be a driver so stuff like that isnt as much of a concern as the top side.
