    Larry: Thanks Using just the existing spring cover bolts is what I was thinking. Not drilling my pristine fender apron is what I wanted to do.
    It's not a full on racer. W my export brace GW Monte Bar GW frame connectors & ZRay cross member, it's not going anywhere

    Seems like I'm only fastened with like 2-3 per bracket. I didn't drill the car-
    I think I modded the brackets to pickup bolts that were already conveniently
    located on the car. If it was a full-on race car I probably would have mounted
    those things like the Brooklyn Bridge though.....
    I was over at Global today, getting a set of L-10 springs, as a matter of fact.

    Larry Thanks. I found Jeg's has a color picture of the brackets. Which is what I'm looking for.
    Also it really necessary to do the 2 additional two top holes?

    Nope. Do not have any but the complete lineup of bars all by themselves.
    I can shoot the one on my '66 if you'd like.

    Probably not. That's when I was there. Didn't sell too many 620's.
    Almost all were the 540# (Moog 8534).
    The 67-70 small block springs are exactly 1" taller free length over
    the 65-66 springs. The 67-70 540s were around 14" tall (totally
    from memory).

    Larry would 67 SB GW 1" shorter springs from early 90's be 620's. I found the remains of their shipping box now that I've reinstalled them, Engine not back in car yet.

    Yes. It is Black Tie classics. The side pipes and wheels are definitely not my
    cup of tea. I think I'd better avoid that place with all the bad press I just
    saw on the internet. You can save the trip, but I appreciate the offer.

    I'd love to return your many favors by going to look at that 48" F1.
    I'm laid up w back problem this week. If it's at Black Tie classics. his cars do require close examination from what I've heard.
