    Does anyone have a template of the measurements for the placement of the right side mirror?

    There may be one floating around here for a '69.

    I seem to recall seeing one and will change the title to reflect that.

    That's not going to work on a '69 as door is totally different. I have it just have to find it for '68-9.

    I have several paper templates that I copied back in the day, send me a pm with mailing address and I'll forward it's as long as the door,

    Hi Brett, I saw a post of yours about a windage tray, you wouldn't happen to have the clip for the brake booster pipe, I was working with Bruno, but haven't heard a response back. I know this has nothing to do with color. Thanks

    I thought the 69 location is different than the 68 due to the vent window. I had a picture of a 68 and 69 door with the mirrors mounted and the 69 seemed much further forward on the door.

    Check out the difference of the mirror placement on the 68 verses the 69. Different template would be used.

    Let me try to get one out of the manual. It is the little clip that bolts to the back of the head and holds the steel portion of the vacuum line
