Default bolting back the lower firewall floor section

Having problems putting my slanted floor/lower firewall section. The section where the pedals go. I never removed this before. The screws seemed to unscrew normally but having trouble aligning them with the threads. One in fact looks like a need longer floor screws. Any help/diagram will be appreciated.

As yours being a four and the floor section you are referring to is stamped steel rather than plywood on V8 chassis the holes should line up, especially since you removed it in the first place. You may be fighting the spring tension on the pedals in which case you can tie down the pedals temporarily with string or wire (telephone wire works great for jobs like that).


(Ignore the upper panel in the photo below as it is for RHD '33-'34 four banger passenger cars and some commercial vehicles).
