Post Post subject: Question about all those interior holes...

Got the inside gutted out. Besides the small screw and bolt holes, there are several oblong holes in the interior. I want to weld them all up and clean up the inside. It is a 69 with no heat anymore and there will not be a back seat either. I want to relocate the battery to the rear firewall under the window. Is there a downside to closing all these holes? Are they needed to allow channels to dry out? There are just so many once the carpet is out and I plan on a spray in type bedliner material....

It's amazing how many holes get drilled in these things over the years, eh? Mine's a '59- you should SEE all the holes in it! Most of mine are in the dash though.

I wouldn't think you'd NEED them for anything. Go ahead and plug 'em!

Look at the size, you can use anthing from fill plates, sheet metal blanks or evan pennys. Size is the key and you need to use the right thing for the size of the hole. don't fill a 3" gap with bondo...
