After about 4 years, I am finally reassembling my 1926 Coupe. I got the body back from the paint shop a couple of weeks ago and am now working on the dash. In going through the parts I have restored, I found a pair of brackets that I labeled years ago "dash brackets". They are 8 1/2 inches long. Only problem is that I cannot find where they would go! None of the holes line up with anything else in the dash area. Did I mislabel them?
Please help if you can, as I am afraid to go any further in the dash reassembly for fear these are as important as they look.

Kahle, those are firewall brackets that you have pictured.

firewall to frame brackets.

They go on the outside front of the firewall - at the base where the firewall is touching the frame. You'll see two holes in the frame on the side that match up with the two close holes on your brackets. The long parts stick straight up and against the firewall.

You were correct in your labeling. Ford refers to the firewall as a Dash. (A carryover from earlier years.) The "other" dash is called an Instrument Panel. :-)

Here's a pic of the passenger side one installed (from elsewhere on the forum):

Wow!
Thank you all. I knew this would be the place to get my answers.
Hope you don't mind if I ask more questions as I proceed!

Forrest,

"Hope you don't mind if I ask more questions as I proceed!"

We would be disappointed if you didn't have any more questions! Or, updates on your project for that matter.

We've all been there. I have received lots of help and sometime sympathy when that was called for. Tell us more about your project!
