  Atwater?  Heck, didn't think anyone was from Atwater :)....I grew up in 

  But I don't welding a plate is necessary.....my plan is to use 1/4in or 
3/16th, whichever comes flush with the those ridges in the firewall, and 
drill through for the M/C bracker bolts.....just using the plate to support 
the firewall some.


oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
