68 RPO D55 hole positions
« on: March 09, 2019, 09:29:55 AM »
Does anybody know of a drawing showing the dimensions for drilling all the trans tunnel holes in the correct position? Putting in some new sheetmetal and want to get it right. Got the photo off this site to show all the holes I'm talking about.

I'm sure the aftermarket panel doesn't include the dimples as described in the AIMs book....Joe

I could make you a template of mine and send it to you if you want.

Yes Joe you're correct, no dimples in new sheetmetal. That would be great Scott, but I live in Australia so I'm not sure how we could make it happen.

If you could get all the mounting dimension from the forward bracket, you could use the console as a guide for the rest of it...Joe

I'll work on it tomorrow making dimensions and posting them up here. It probably will help others too.

Hope this works, All measurements were taken from either the centerline of the tunnel or from the seam  where the cowl to floor meets (bottom of blue tape)

Thanks Scott, you've done a great job. As you said, I'm sure this will help others too because as was discussed there's no dimples in new sheet metal.
Regards Larry.
