I have a Scott Drake chrome export brace that I would like to install in my 66 Fastback. Does the export brace sit on top of the brackets that currently are on the shock towers, do they get removed prior to installation? I would like to know what would be more "correct". Thanks all this site is a great help!
On mine...I removed the two pieces flimsy pieces that bolt on, and then I cut off the stubs that were spot welded to the shock towers. Having them on there would serve no purpose. Removing them, gives your engine bay a "cleaner" look.
*edit* another reason to remove the pieces welded to the shock tower, is that if you plan to put in a 351W...good luck getting the valve covers off without scratching them. In other words its a tight fit at that point.
Just my $0.02
