Making An Aluminum Under Dash Panel


Made a new hood release/hazard switch under dash panel out of 24 x 24 1/16th inch aluminum sheet I bought at Lowe's, January 30, 2021.

 

The original hood release hazard switch panel was ripped & distorted from the past 52 years of heat & cold use.

 

1. Made a painters tape template. The peeled it off the panel slowly & carefully.

2. Flattened the tape to the aluminum sheet along the grain.

3 Outlined the template with Sharpie & marked all the screws holes & cut it out with metal shears & drilled the holes.

4. Used the original panel to get the curved edge at the top of the is photo & measure the flange at the bottom.

5. Fit perfectly the first time! The upper left screw was the most difficult to install
