I have always been curious.

On the early Shelby's they welded a plate reinforce the firewall at the front face of the vent box.

How did they weld the plate on? What it all around the plate? What did they do on the inside of the vent to prevent rust?

I am not trying to make a fake Shelby, though that thought has crossed my mind. I have just always been curious.

Thanks,

Kevin

They used a welder to weld the plate on and then caulking.

What did they do to the cowl vent to prevent rust? lol...nothing and neither did Ford. That is why they rust out :)
