    Firewall cover plate after taking off a/c box

    I have a 70 SS El Camino. I took off the ugly a/c box at the firewall. I have seen custom plates to cover the gaping hole. Does anyone know where to find them?
    Thanks

    You can switch it over to non A/C. Believe it or not the non A/C box will cover the hole 95 %. If it doesn't weld a small plate to cover it at the top. That way you will have a blower, heat and defrost etc. If it's just a race car and you don't need those things just find a non A/C box. You will also have some wiring to do from A/C to non A/C heater control if you want that to work. It's a cheap way to go and looks factory.

    On a 70 Chevelle the non ac box will not cover it up. I have a 72 and I had to make one. The heater core is on the opposite side on a non ac car. not opposite side of car opposite side of box. You can buy a special blower motor for an AC car that does not have the ac box. They are all ovcer ebay and any of the chevelle restoration places have them. They are about $140

    Wooops, thought the Chevelle was the same for Camaro and Nova.
    Bummer. In that case if it's a race car I'd cover it myself and save $120.00 to $140.00.
