OK, so I bought the "Rubber Plug and Grommet Kit" from NPD(not sure why the word grommet is in there, 'cuase there ain't any in the kit!). Now the question becomes, where do they all go? The shock and seat hole grommets are a easy, but there are quite a few other smaller ones.

My question: Is there a document or posting as to which holes need to be plugged?

Seat track bolt holes take up 8 them, there are 2 behind the kick panels hiding the mounting bolt, antenna cable goes through 1 of them, Rear quarter drain uses one per side, Gas pedal uses one.

The Osborn assembly manuals show all the locations.

I'm still trying to locate all of them also. Here are the ones I have been able to fill so far.

Engine bay (4)
Cowl drain holes (2)
Seat bolt hole plugs (8)
Transmission support brace (2) I think
Rear shocks (2)
Lower quarter panel trunk drains (2)

OK - how can I get one of those? Or better yet, if a '65 owner has one, can they post the locations?

All of the Mustang vendors carry the manuals. The Body manual shows the plug locations, including the ones most people forget about like frame rail sides.

There are 32 plugs in this kit - so far we know of 22 locations. How about descriptions of the other 10?

I stripped my entire car down this past winter(except the engine compartment) and I still have some of those plugs left in the bag

Wait, there is one small one that goes on the tranny tunnel on the passenger side, and a small one that goes on the floor on the driver's floor pan. Did you count those two?

I don't have time now, but on my 68 you don't need all the plugs. I'll check tonight if no one else pitches in.

If you are talking about the transmission crossmember, then yes, otherwise, no.
