Here is the right side on my 345. It's a rather cobbled together install. But seems to do the job.
I haven't gotten a pic of the left side that shows it clearly. I'll try with more light if you like.
But after seeing this one I would think any reservations about making one should be gone. 👍

Cheers Richard

Here is my right side inner fender that I added after my motor replacement.

None of that shielding on my 84. It does not look to hard to duplicate.

To add to the discussion.

On the RH/Pass side, this is the piece that sticks out on the front end under restoration. The slot is the infeed for the Heater/AC unit.


This is the assembly as I took it out, with the broken ABS Heater/AC duct. I need to make a new one of sheet aluminum.



The panel that goes behind that against the exhaust and RH bank of the motor is a plate piece of sheet steel, probably 20 gauge. I will photograph and dimension it when I go out to my MH next.

This is the Drivers side.

Nick, just FYI the 345 in discussion is an 85 model so will most likely be a carbureted engine so no knock sensor.

These pics help immensely!! Thank you !!! the shop has a metal fabrication guy so they should be able to create something like this !

Once Again I appreciate all the comments and feedback ! I've shared these posts with my Shop and once I get home, we'll be able to review what's in place and next steps.

Right now, we're replacing the Fan Clutch (AC DELCO), I am having a custom aluminum radiator made, and we'll be looking at these shrouds too !

Hopefully.... Some of us we'll be seeing each other rolling down the highways soon !

No problemo!

My guess is that you have the passenger side shield with the HVAC duct in it.
The other piece on the passenger side is a flat sheet, so dead easy to replicate.
That Barth template for the other side should be good, just compare it to the pics to know.
