Are the hangers for the chambered exhaust different than those for regular transverse muffler system?

I believe you can use 3 M strip caulk.  I got mine at Orielly Auto Parts.

Yeah Chick, I actually talked to one of the judges on the phone and he said if they missed something and you came back the next year, the miss was their fault and they would not re-judge it.  They only will judge what you have fixed.

Thanks John, very helpful.

Yeah I know it Chick, but as I understand it they will only judge the things that I have changed in the second year.  Firewall mat will be the same, just placed over the carpet.

Yes, they do rip.  I have the non-molded one now and tore it taking out the driver's side kick panel to repair some wiring.  As is the case with most of these jobs, one thing leads to another so I have both seats, and the console out.  I am currently right in the middle of removing the heater box so I can have complete access to the firewall.  My car just went through Legends and got a score 0f 91.6 percent so I am working on the remaining issues the judges found in the interior.  They did not gig me for my non-molded firewall mat so I am installing the same one.   They did get me for carpet not being cut properly for the seats and another for the firewall pad not being over the carpet.   The heater box appears to be a real fight but I should have it out today.  Thanks for your helpful suggestions.

Thanks Hans, It is a hassle.  I am in the middle of removing the heater box.  I have decided to use the cheaper but more flexible version in the hope that I can snake it around the front of the console with removing it.

I am going to install in new firewall pad in my 69.  There are two types on the market with very different prices.  Molded-very expensive and non-molded, reasonably priced.  Which of these will comply with concours standards and which is easier to install?  Thanks for your help.

Thanks John, so can you tell if there is a slit from bolt hole to bolt hole?

Does anyone have photos or suggestions for proper install of front seats in relation to stock carpet.  I understand that the seats are supposed to be UNDER the carpet.  Mine are currently installed over the carpet.  Since I have them out for cleaning and under dash work I want to reinstall them correctly. This will install cutting perfectly good carpet so I do not want to make mistakes.   Thanks for your help.

Checked the code with Jerry and he says it is OK.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Rear Body Harness Replacement Procedure on a 69 Coupe on: July 16, 2012, 06:03:58 AM
The dashboard end of the body harness was partially separated.  Who knows how it happened but I reconnected it and all is well. Getting the kick panel out is a BEAR!  Of course I scratched it and will be getting a new one.

Finally got them fixed.  The dash plug on the Fisher Body harness was slightly loose.  Problem solved.

Thanks Steve, that is what I thought.  Gonna dig into it tomorrow.  I do know there is no juice at the trunk end. Am I correct in thinking the dash end is behind the kick panel?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Rear Body Harness Replacement Procedure on a 69 Coupe on: July 15, 2012, 01:32:35 PM
I have determined that I need to replace my rear body harness.  This harness is routed between the dash and the trunk with a plug on the driver's side of the trunk for the tail light/turn signal/marker light harness.  What is the best way to replace the rear body harness on a done car? What do I need to remove to get at the harness?  It looks like the kick panel for sure.  Of course I will check the plug there before I proceed any further.   All wires at the headlight switch plug are working correctly and my tail light section operates as it should when I apply independent power.  Thanks for your help.
