I'm working on my brothers 71 Comet. I have a question.
How do you replace the upper hinge tapping plate on the drivers side of the body? Do I have to remove the dash to gain access?
The plate dropped down inside the cowl when I took the door hinges off. I can reach up and feel a hole in the cowl, but don't see how I can get it in there without dropping it again.
By the way, it is still in the cowl side area. I need to fish it out of there...

I got it !

I fished it out of the cowl side and after MUCH fiddling, I got it back in.
I took some longer bolts and cut the heads of them to make pins.
I can slip the hinge on the pins, then replace each pin with a bolt so the thing doesn't fall out again. The fender and door are off so the pin length is not important.
Thanks.
