Steel A/C delete box

I want to make or buy a steel A/C delete box for my 87 formula. Who has made one before and how did you do it. I would like it to stick maybe an inch out of the firewall so i can mount My MSD box and coil on it. could I maybe even put a plate over it and fab up a filter for the heater box hole.
Thanks.

Re: Steel A/C delete box

I know you said steel, but if you don't mind fiberglass -
https://www.ebay.com/itm/82-92-Third...ete+82-92.TRS0
A.C. Delete for all 82-92 F-body. (Camaro, Firebird, Trans Am) Allows you to remove the evaporator core housing cleaning up the firewall, and maintain the heater function. Flat top allows for optimal placement of MSD box on firewall. Holes marked in factory location. (YOU WILL NEED TO DRILL THE HOLES FOR THE FAN AND TO MOUNT TO THE FIRE WALL) Also allows use of FACTORY AC fan and mounting hardware. High quality fiberglass requires very light sanding and paint. Also marked for blower fan resistor allowing use of variable speed ac fan if desired. Easy project, just pull off your evaporator cover. Use the original fan and resistor if you desire. Then bolt back on. No need to replace the factory heater core, fan, or resistor. Quick shipping guaranteed. Any questions are welcome. Case will be in white gelcoat. Highest guality and the cheapest you'll find anywhere. This allows for more space for large valve covers and headers as well as big block engines. Molded in fiberglass for additional strength and stands up to heat, far better than the generic plastic covers offered. This piece also features more crisp and square lines much like the original steel heater box looked like. Exterior is primed in white which creates a great base for any color paint. As you can see for yourself there has been great effort taken to improve this piece, rest assured your getting the best A/C delete cover on the market!

There are cheaper ones on ebay, but you would need the non-AC fan and motor. This one is designed to use the original AC components. Ask for the discount for thirdgen.org members.

I would use fiberglass I'm just worried that it's not strong enough. But if it is strong enough to hold the MSD and coil yeah I will use it.
