I may have to add one to it though.

You are probably right. I had time to study it today and have tentatively decided to cut the ash tray, heater control and all of the other protrusions out as a single piece and leave as much of the remaining structure as possible (... which includes the angle in question). I'll leave a small flange at the top and next to the gauges and utilize the existing flange on the right side of the glove box to weld to. I plan on doing the cut tomorrow and leaving the panel off to give the plaster more room to do his job. dug
