Looks as good or better then new.Great mines think alike on the 10 blade fuse box. Mind was water proof (?) so on the outside where the old one was located, but I like your idea also.My son used the ABS sheeting to make the enclosure, but you could not sell them for the right price, to expensive, lots of time involved.Again, you are doing great work and helping the whole gang.Wayne

Thanks Wayne. I have a 1/4 sheet of ABS I'll be using. Makes sense to put it on the inside, the way this one is setup. I was contemplated figuring out a way to install it in the OEM location but that would look funny t o me. At least this way I can leave the OEM on the outside and appear stock at first glance.

Good idea. The sheet Alan used was 1/8 inch and he scored the bend area then heated it up and bent with a right angle bar.That's what took all the time. He use the original as a pattern, so it had the overlaps to pop rivet together.If you look at my write up on the Journal part with the fuse box, I got a suggestion from Spitman (Doug), to turn it around to clear the clutch master when I take the cover off. I thought it would clear, but close, so followed his advise and will have to change my drawings of the harness. You have to be able to change direction a lot of the time in our working toward perfection. LOLWayne

Thanks for the tips. I have been researching how to make a bend like this on ABS. The method I use for making hinge covers does not apply here.
