Hello,

I am looking for a Black driver's side kick panel, WITH the holes for the speakers for my 67 Cat. If I have to buy the pair, I will consider.

Thanks for looking. Please PM me if you have a Driver's side or pair available.

At WCCC we've been discussing options for punching or drilling those holes in the repro blank panels, but so far nothing has seemed really viable. CNC drilling maybe? We'd be interested to hear from any members here who have ideas on how this could be done. Not to threadjack you but this is something that almost all 67-68 Cougars need at this point.

I've been thinking about using my old panels to make a jig and then hand drilling a new set. Not very practical for mass production.

CNC Waterjet would do it nicely. I drilled all the holes in my latest project, it is really time consuming since you also have to go back and debur each one by hand to get rid of the melted plastic around each hole.

I will most likely do what PacificaXR7GT, mentioned. My driver's side is serviceable and good for a template.
