I purchased a beautiful 68 350 HO convertible over the winter and have been doing some finishing touches. I bought one of those rubber stopper kits as many were missing and the remaining ones were worn. I got most of them on, but I was not able to identify a few to figure out where they go. Is there a good chart or something somewhere? Thanks!
There are a few different kits sold and I don't recall a single source defining locations of all the rubber bumpers/stoppers since there are some all over, in and under the '68.. What kit are you referring to and what parts in it are you trying to locate? We should be able to help with pictures.
Thanks, Jim. I've attached a picture of the ones I'm not sure of. I think 2 of the small round ones are for the console lid. BTW - the larger round ones are hollow in back - as if they fit over something (screw or bolt head?).
I spent most of the day today pulling out the entire interior - lots of new parts to install, clean and freshen, plus window adjustments. I've got some wiring to track down, too. Going to be a fun week. I'm sure I'll have more questions. I've been lurking, reading and learning since before the car arrived, even. Great forum! Not my first FGF, but the last one I had was over 25 years ago, and I didn't do much to it, really.
The round ones go on top of the hood stop posts on top of the radiator support. The two on the right are fender to hood bumpers. The small ones are glove box and console door bumpers.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure. I feel like I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. 1968 400 convertible (Scarlet) 1968 400 coupe - R/A clone (Blue Pearl) (for sale) 1968 350 - 4 speed 'vert - 400 clone (the beast!) 1968 350 convertible - Wife's car now- 400 clone (Aleutian Blue) (Blue Angel) 1967 326 convertible - Sold 2006 Durango - winter beater 1980 T/A SE Bandit - Sold 2008 GXP - Just can't stomach selling her!
