68 Camaro Tunnel 4 speed hole location with console
« on: April 19, 2013, 07:50:02 PM »
Hello all,
 I am almost ready to paint the floors on my 68 SSRS and I repaired the butchered trans tunnel. I want to cut the correct hole for a factory style shifter and would like to know the correct location if possible. Does anyone have a picture with measurements or a car apart they can get me some exact measurements from? I found a pic for a 69 but isn't the 67 & 68 are different??
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated..
 Thanks in advance,
 Nick

Nick,
I hope you saved the reinforcement ring that goes on the tunnel, shown in post #13.

If you don't want to make your own ring, they sell it repro.
