Another week and two more panels. The trick with the footwell panels was to retain access to the suspension bolt on the lower A-arm. These panels go on one side of the suspension bracket and a cover goes on the other side due to it being in the radiator outlet stream. This is so the bolt can be accessed after it’s all buttoned up, and also so hot or cold air doesn’t sneak in through the A-arm pass-through port. After drilling them for screws or rivets (haven’t decided which) there’s two more panels needed to finish up the center tunnel, then after that there’s the storage tray bottom to do. Easy compared to the curved stuff!
