I purchased a 1961 Austin-Healey 3000 BT7 from a rather eccentric gentleman (hoarder) and am in the process of restoring it. Unfortunately, he decided one day he'd start stripping it for paint and started pulling parts off. I think when he got discouraged he put it on Craigslist, which is where I found it. Also unfortunately, when he stripped the parts off he did not label anything, so the process has been part restoration work, part archeological dig. I think I have most things figured out, but there is a piece of metal, about 46 1/2" long and 3 1/2 to 5 1/2" wide, which I cannot figure out for the life of me where it goes. Please take a look at the picture link and tell me if you know what it is?
Thank you in advance!
