    Does anyone have a nice picture of a firewall from a 71 GS455 with AC?
    Without anything attached or with stuff in place.

    I have tons of screwholes from accessory crap that has been mounted.
    I know the vacuum canister has two holes and the blower relay.
    I'd like to weld the unnecessary holes shut.

    Mine looked like Jeffrey Epstein had gotten a hold of it, but it should have 2 holes at the top for blower relay, 3 holes for voltage regulator, holes for the vacuum reservoir and wiper motor, and a couple big holes for grommets where wires go through. Other than that, I don't see any other holes on mine that attach to important stuff.

    Oh yeah, don't forget all the holes for your heater/ac box. I don't have a photo of the firewall with everything pulled off, but got one with some of the important stuff mounted.

    Thanks! where does the ground wire from the regulator go to?

    I usually add an extra ground strap from the battery to battery tray because I have had a number of occasions when, for some reason, the grounding strap wasn't sufficient and some of the electrical stuff wouldn't work. It's not factory correct, but it makes life easier not trying to chase down electrical ground issues.
