I'm putting an export brace in my 65 GT and have searched like crazy to see what other people do. All my bolt holes line up no problem so that's not the issue. The issue is the cowl lip pinch weld upturn. The export brace doesn't sit flat on the top of the cowl pinchweld because the lip has a 90 degree up turn on the edge the length of it. I've never seen any other post where someone has commented on this. So do I just bolt it up and tighten and expect the lip to bend where the export brace makes contact or do I pre-bend that section down where it makes contact. I feel like it's small enough and thick enough it will just bend the whole pinch weld downwards and not the upturn.
