inner to outer cowl divider

Now that I finally got my inner cowl fitted and welded in, I need to move on to the big divider that goes between the inner and outer cowl panel. I looked at the info in the FAM, and it looks simple enough, that is until you put the piece up against the rocker and inner cowl. It's pretty obvious that this piece fits as bad or worse than the inner cowl did. Since you guys helped me so much on the inner cowl, I thought I'd check with you for hints and tips on this next piece, which I would call a seperator or divider. I assume that the first step is to bolt it up to the rocker, and then to figure out how to get it up against the inner cowl. Any tips or suggestions will be most appreciated.

In my mind, with all the fitment problems people have, the most important thing is to make sure that outer panel lines up correctly. So it didn't bother me that my inner to outer cowl panel piece didn't fit the greatest. Especially since it spends most of its life hidden from view.

I agree with Mark

I hacked my repop inner-to-outer cowl pieces to match the outer cowl and the kick panel. In some places, I needed to add material and in others, cut it away.

The aftermarket inner-to-outer cowls are awful. They do have enough sheet metal in them to make a good one out of. Cutting and welding required.
It would be very helpful to have enough of whats left of the old one in hand so that you will know where to reshape it to fit.

My new inner to outer piece was so bad that a friend of mine actually took my old rusted out on and little by little "remade it". I threw the new one in the trash can.
...yep, "beat them into submission".....I actually learned that phrase from someone else when doing my inner to outer. Patience, patience, patience. Walk away if you have to and come back later. You can do it.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
