    Some parts have been more difficult to come across, and we have 3 weeks to get the car (reasonably) done for MCACN. Here is my current list of needs, and will update it as we find them, or need more.

    This is for a 72 Stage1 car

    Driveshaft and yoke (for 4 speed, not sure if the same length as TH400)
    72 air cleaner foams
    Bumper jack
    Correct throttle return spring (I have several, but all wrong)

    Edited 11/5/18 to reflect current needs

    To be honest, I don’t know if it needs the curve or not. It’s a non AC car.

    Stage 2 iron Nice Chevelle LOL

    I have a hood latch center support without the latch though. The one left in the picture. Needs to be blasted and painted it's yours for the cost of shipping. Also have the inner fender splash shields. Send a PM. if you would be interested. IMG_1609.JPG IMG_1612.JPG IMG_1616.JPG IMG_1617.JPG

    PMs sent...

    Lou, I will check the assembly manual tomorrow for clarification on the curve. For some reason, I have it in my head that all 72's had the curved one.

    On the latch support "stage2iron" posted, you would need the one with the grill studs, the other one is a 70 style

    What's the difference? I can't tell :D If that is the case, is that one for sale, Stage 2 Iron?

    Here is where I got my hood insulation. You only use three pieces for the GS hood. I have to caution you, the gray material attached to the yellow insulation is very fragile so handle with care. The fit is very nice and they look great.

    Thanks Richie. I believe what I am looking for is the board, as well.

    I'm not seeing the goofy cup washer/nut for it, though.

    I am not sure if you have your battery cables yet, but 72 was the first year for the side post. No one carries them, but if you send the rubber block (without the cable) to M & H, they will make you the correct positive and negative cable.

    I bought all the electrical stuff from Todd Miller, thanks though.

    Several of the things on my list is available aftermarket. I'm going to knock out a few of them...thin the list down :D
