Re: Firewall Screw/Bolt Size?

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! You guys saved my backside on this project. 10-32 is the right size for my 30/31 firewalls. Factory D nut, and there is just no way to get a #12 in that hole. I'm glad I...

Re: Cowl Lamp Wiring

Hey, THANKS guys! VERY helpful! I found two openings there by using a light under the car to shine back up into that area.

Are those openings there on all cars 28-31?
