    Hello, I am working in the metal of my 70 Charger RT. I want a clean restomod and part of the project is a clean and smooth engine bay. I am now working in the firewall and I would like to know which holes can I fill and which ones are completely necessary. Car will have a fresh rebuilt 495 stroker with Vintage Air air conditioning system. Any advice or picture is welcome. My idea is something like the second picture below. By the way, I attach one image of the ChallengerĀ“s one. I guess the holes disposition will be more or less the same, isnĀ“t it?. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I filled pretty much everything on the passenger side and it smoothed it out a bit - I didn't want to make a whole new firewall so I left the master cylinder, steering linkage, bulkhead.... you get the idea.

        I did the same on my 70' Challenger. Filled in all the holes or made off block off plates from the inside. Skim coat of filler on the outside. Can always be taken back to stock if someone wants to cut out the block off plates. I left the wiper and brake master holes.

        All the electronics - (VR, MSD box, Relays) all were mounted under the dash - the car got a vintage air unit so that freed up a lot of space under the dash for that stuff
