Cordially Mike


it depends on the shape of the molding, the Cord floor molding is very flat and it is possible to cut the sheet metal has the right size.
But if the molding is larger must provide oversize.

The Pullmax does stretch the sheet metal a little, but normally not enough, so you have to prestretch where you want the molding, to prevent the sheet metal from shrinking.

RubyDS: Regarding the battery box cover, I will try go to my car tonight to document the dimensions for you. There is, however, at least one more dimension you'll want. You can see it on the bottom edge immediately to the right of the left-most bottom screw hole - a slight, flat rise about 1-1/2" long. It must be for a flat, braided grounding wire. Perhaps you will want to add two dimensions to capture the measurement, one before and one after the rise?

Meanwhile, please re-post your picture with these "arrows" and also label each arrow as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 (and 7?). Then I will provide you the measurements for each labeled arrow.

I hope this will help you.

Also, in which city are you doing your work?

Best wishes,
Albert
