1967 SS/SS 350. I will be installing D&R Classics 2-1/4" exhaust kit and have some questions and looking for any tips to make the job go smoother.
First off, are hand tools (and a torque wrench) enough or do I need air tools? I noticed the in/lbs torque specs in the AIM.
According to the 67 AIM, the tailpipe hanger bolts were threaded into the coupe frame with riv nuts. Do I need them? Heartbeat city has some listed but for the LH side only. My current set up does not have them. Both hangers were threaded directly into the frame with screws (pictured) but no riv nuts. I know the exhaust system has been replaced in the past by the previous owner, but I believe the tailpipe hangers and screws are originals. Here are some pics if anyone can verify if they are originals.

The original muffler hangers and screws were missing when I removed the exhaust system currently installed. I am sure this bracket is wrong? Also looking for the correct location of the muffler hangers, and type of screws if anyone has any. Here are where mine were mounted
