I don't know what's wrong with the heater hose bracket or fan shroud bolt either.   They look just like mine

On my 69; the  harness connector comes off of the bulkhead  on the firewall with one screw in the middle.   Once off; the two harness parts slide apart.   The fuse panel  is fastened to the bulkhead connector with two screws; upper right and lower left hand corners of the fuse panel,  Remove those screws and the fuse panel clips to the bulkhead connector with 2 molded on plastic clips.  Unclip it and then the fuse panel can be pulled off of the bulkhead connector and the bulkhead connector from the firewall if so desired.  The fuse panel has molded on "legs" that slide into the bulkhead connector and also provide a gap for the wires so they are not crunched.   You'll see how it comes apart once the screws are out.     Don't bend any terminals  or it is a real pain to line up the harness connector on the engine side when it is time to screw it back together.  Don't ask me how I know.  I had the same thought as you do and did this to mine not long ago.   It was perfect; a waste of my time, but still good to know it was
in good shape.

Interesting.....................

The car looks nice for its age.  However,  the seller's postings, they raise a big red flag to me.
I agree with LM69Z28;   a closer look would reveal a lot about this car.

HBC has gotten most of my recent business ( I don't have a lot of need to buy).  The customer service is good, parts are good, and the
parts are delivered promptly.  I'm pleased with them.

Not stock as it came from the factory

Amazing; again.    Two fake tags in one day!   Wonder what it was originally?

73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Mold damage on vinyl - fixable ??? on: June 11, 2013, 10:39:49 PM
During the 80's my Camaro was in storage in a building my dad owned.    Anyway, one day  he happened to notice surface mold starting on
the  back seat.   We talked on the phone and decided to use a good vinyl cleaner on the seats, door panels etc.   He did this a couple of times a year
and the mold never reappeared.   From your photo's the mold wasn't as bad as yours, but it probably
would have been.  Dad's gone now,  sure wish I could remember the product he used.   Dad loved the car as much as I do.  Good luck with your seat.   Jim

There is enough space between the floor of the car and the top of the  frame rail to get a wrench in there; then a socket with an extension through the
hole in the frame rail to get the bolt head from underneath.  I use a punch or long screw driver to re-align the holes for the bolt upon re-assembly.

It's not a bad job; it just annoys me because it has to be done this way; taking the bolts out of the cross member and transmission mount to ease the
thing back to get to the rear pan bolts.   Over the years I've learned to use as big of a drain pan as possible, and  have lots of shop towels at the
ready.  Good luck       Jim

It fits together;  that must have been GM's goal at the time.  Its just one of those things that makes one wonder what they were thinking.  The original transmission pan; has a drain plug, but yet the cross member prevents easy access to the transmission filter!  It's a real  mess to change both; the design  made an easy thing into a really irritating drippy mess. 
I've owned the car since I was 18 and  still recall my thoughts the first time under the car............."What the HuhHuhHuhHuh"
Over time I've decided they got 99% of the car right, this is just something that could have been a better design on the cross member.
