Default Firewall/toe board

Is there a reason that firewall/toe boards (best description I could find) angle back toward the cab vs just being squared? I canít see how it really effects pedal function or anythingÖ maybe it does. Just ergonomics, idk. Iíd love to hear opinions/answers.
Thanks

I think just ergonomics. Good angle for the old foot button dimmer switch. Only my model a has an angled toe board. How is that project coming?

That makes sense.
Itís coming along slowly but surely. List is getting shorter, but itís still too long.
