We just need to know how thick the wood is so we can get the spacing right and set the firewall at the correct hight. If you have all the dimensions we could just make hood shelves out of wood but all i have is the catalogue and a few pictures.

Thanks for all your help guys.

The wood on my 15 is 11/16" thick and is painted black.

I respectfully would point out that the factory drawing for the part calls them out at 5/8" thick and the thickness didn't change from date of adoption of drawing (2/4/08) to redesign of the part to be then made out of steel with wood underneath (4/3/16). Redesign date was not the date that the parts were steel on production cars. That would have been sometime after that date. Torpedo drawings for hood block on those cars also called out 5/8" thick.
