I'm removing the factory heating and air, and I'm left with three huge holes in the firewall. Is there a factory or reproduction delete plate to cover these, or is it break out the welder time? Another question is where does the water drain that falls into the cowl vents? The water looks like it just runs down the inside of the passenger kick plate and finds a way out between the body seams, is this correct? I could probably grab the garden hose and find out for myself, but the floor pan, and under the dash are stripped to bare metal, and I would rather find out the proper drainage path without the use of a garden hose.

Frank,

You will have to weld metal over these holes to convert it to non-air car.

The drain is at the bottom between the outer skin and the kickpanel wall. You can look inside the hole where the evaporator was mounted and see it. It mat be clogged with debris if it isn't visible.

The 64 cars with factory air are so rare that I think that you are crazy to do that, but it is your car and you are free to do as you please. Just my opinion.

progress has little to do with speed, but lots to do with direction.
