Chris and Paul,

Obviously I was half asleep last night when I replied. I still want to thank both of you for the information, but now I realize there was only one photo. It was late, and I'm old!

No problem Ken!  You can't be that old if you're driving a '68 Camaro!     :)

I used a guy who sells (or used to) on eBay for my 4x6's.  JV Restorations or something like that.  Came out perfect.  I'll see if I can find his contact info.  This was 3 or 4 years ago now.

Just found his email - from 2005!!!  Joe Vijil   joevijil@adelphia.net
And it is jvrestorations on eBay.  Hope he could help you out.  It was $45 each back then.

Great photo Chris!  That's the layout I was trying to described, but a "picture is worth a thousand words".  On my Camaro, there is also a metal bracket that clips into one of the speaker mounting holes (mine is located in the right upper hole in Chris' photo) that supports the speaker wire so it doesn't hang down and snag on something.  Also, my speaker wire is blue in color.     :)

Thanks Paul.
Someone had mentioned those clips to me once at a show, can you post or send me a pic?

Hey Chris -

I finally found a photo of the U80 speaker wire clip (bracket) I'd mentioned...

Paul, thanks!  I have seen that clip before.  Not sure of the application though because it's attached to the speaker and the speaker carries a different part number.

Chris -

I got that photo off Ebay, but the clip is the exact same one as on my original 7300614 U80 speaker in my '68 Z/28.     :)
