Take notice of the cable that connects both hood releases. Turns out it has to be fastened in three spots behind the distributor, upside down.
During the fire wall repairs a couple years ago we didn't know those holes were needed so, if they were there, we glassed over them. The holes have to be drilled in the overhead position and that means all the work must to be done using an inspection mirror.
It turned out nice. I have primer and primer sealer on order. Once received I'll give this area a fresh coat of each.
Truth is I already started masking (check out the first picture). It's going well but there is a lot of it. I'll cover that in the next post.
