Hmmm... not sure. Two of the lower holes (the most wide apart) appear to be for the V8 starter solenoid.

The horn relay is over in that neighborhood on some trucks, too. I agree that comparing your pics with the 48 firewall, it looks like at least 99% of the holes are in both.

This pretty much sums it up with the hole count, this looks just like what I had for holes except your heater hose openings aren't punched.

I think you're right about the two lower holes. I'll probably be filling the two upper holes.

Yeah, I figure if they're on both firewalls they most likely were put their at the factory. It's pretty unlikely that two different PO's would punch new holes in the exact same place.

Found this image online. Even the two holes below the data plate I thought I would fill are visible on this one.
