The Camaro was moved to the metal fabrication shop where the new firewall would be created.
Once the heater block off panel was removed, it became obvious that this car was originally painted blue. It was also obvious that because of the cracks and previous finish work, the heater block off panel was holding water and rusting the bottom of the firewall. Water literally ran out when we removed the panel.
The opening was ground smooth of rust and corrosion and a plan was made for the new firewall.
Fabricator John felt a large piece would allow him to start over cleanly.
