Firewall Holes - What are these for?

I replaced the firewall in my 69 and I've mapped out all of the holes in the firewall except a couple of odd ones at the top. Anybody know what these are used for?

Re: Firewall Holes - What are these for?

The hole by itself is for the firewall pad retainer and the small hole & larger rectangular hole next to it is for the L6 throttle cable. (Although it shouldn't be a rectangular hole!) This same hole is also used for the radio ground strap on V8 cars, but again, it shouldn't be rectangular!

You can see the throttle cable in the AIM, UPC 6, Sheet D2, Item 1 (view B), the U63 (or U69) radio ground in UPC U63/U69, Sheet A6, item 2 (two places), and the drilling instructions in UPC 0, Sheet A9, Items 4 and 2.

Re: Firewall Holes - What are these for?

Thanks, the square hole is what was confusing me. Couldn't find anything like it in the AIM. Love after market sheetmetal.
