I'm working on putting in the new engine tin in the engine bay with my current restoration. I searched around the internet and I found some good photos but they are showing something I was not aware of.

Question 1: On the passenger side the photo below shows a half circle cut out in the engine tin where it joins up with the cross-member frame. Is this unique to the B and if so what is it used for or is this a modification someone is making for other reasons than original?

Question 2:
The photo below also shows a curved support panel under the engine tin to the frame - inside the engine bay. Is this an original piece for the 356 B and if so who makes this piece?

Thanks for your help.

Scott

1-used to route wiring to the engine and regulator-all 60-65 cars have that-I think the bolt in early treys had that too

2-the curved part is a heat shield for the muffler used on all B and C

Here is a good photo of where your cutout should be for wiring entering the engine compartment.
