Thanks John. Seems the website is down today but I have their catalog. I must have overlooked that page. Maybe we can flip the RHD part up-side-down? Kidding. Good to know Doug. Great website btw.

You've hit another example of a frustrating point there Mike - why do companies like Steelcraft bother to go out of their way to make these replacement panels; and then in doing so, ignore the biggest potential market for the very product they're producing?

In reply to # 728885 by carChips Hey, WAIT! Where did the A/C go? Looks great Mike, coming along nicely. I like your decision to fit the pieces. It's well worth the effort, very little filler needed.

I need one too. The ONLY body damage on my 1980 tub is this clutch/brake shelf due to leaked brake fluid. I have considered just adding a doubler over the whole panel. But clearly this is a much better solution.

Nice work, good luck.

Mike

I have a bulkhead off from my old body that is headed to the scrap pile. It has some surface rust but not to bad. I can cut this off how ever a person would want it. If someone would pay for shipping I will salvage it.

FYI, Rimmers lists this repair panel for $45 USD

https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-RL1475

However, it's not clear whether this is a LHD or RHD panel ... ;(

Another option is a fresh blank plate cut to fit a Wildwood pedal set.

Besides Wilwood, also offered by other vendors, Afco, Tilton, etc., check for best pricing.
Be prepared to 'iterate' the exact mix of master cylinders bore diameters to work best on your car.
Ideally the fronts will lock up just before the rears, with firm but comfortable pedal pressure.
