    CN air cleaner decal

    As said previous. Most of your Part Source Brick & Mortar Stores has them. Open up OPGI, Impala Bob's, Parts Place etc. etc. and look under Decals. Than particular Decal your wanting should be found within that parts group. Doug

    Hi Allen and welcome to our Madness. I noticed that you purchased a 72 Custom? I actually sent you a Private Message (PM) inquiring about your Custom. I have been tracking them in order to establish a ball park figure on how many still exist. GM never offered production numbers in 1972 that were separate from the total production for that year. Periodically I update my Data Base and share the info with our Membership. If you could provide me No. 1, your VIN and No. 2 your cars Options, paint and anything else you feel identifies your car would be appreciated. I may already have it listed from an earlier time and you providing me your info ensures I am not duplicating these Gems. Again, welcome and hope to hear back from you. Doug

    After reviewing this Allstate Car Insurance Commercial, do you notice anything familiar about Mayhem? Compare the video, especially near the end to the pic I included and then see if it rings a Bell. Be afraid! Be very afraid...................... I'm not one to cast stones but are we traveling in the wrong company? https://www.ispot.tv/ad/IZTi/allstate-mayhem-car-thief-featuring-dean-winters

    to the Boards Tom. It's true! There is a treasure trove of information from the Membership and open;ly willing to share their experiences. I'm sure someone will respond to your Floor Pan question. Fortunately, I was able to avoid that repair on mine, so no point of reference. Keep checking back................. Again, welcome and all the best with your Build Tom................. Doug

    Body Trim

    Here is the link I sent for you. Hope it opens as I hadn't tried this before.

    Body Trim

    Here is the Kit for the 10 Pc. that covers the Body Lower Side Moldings only. You can procure these from the Parts Place if you need them and they are packaged identifying location. The bottom Body Sill Rocker Moldings use aftermarket Aveco #8400 plastic Clips that can be purchased as well. 10 per side if I'm remembering correctly? You will also need (2) plastic retainer clips 5/16" x 5/16" with a threaded hole thru the center of it plus (2) stainless sheet metal screws to secure Plastic retainer at rear of Rockers.. As far as how to install them? Each individual Lower Trim piece on one side would be secured exactly as the other side. The trick is laying out half of the fasteners on one side where they would go and then taking your time, fasten them based on a combo of the clips & screws needs. When I installed the plastic square clips, I then slipped the molding over the bottom until held by the clips and then gently pull up on Molding, with gentle force pushing inward toward vehicle and Molding will clip over the top of plastic clip and your secure (unless in some cases, screws are required to finish the job). You will find the lower side molding right behind the front tires has 3 nuts that screw into the clips holding them in place on the Body and they are hidden behind the frame. To remove/secure screws, the best idea is to remove a few screws holding Inner Fenders (rear side of fenders) and pushing Inner Fender in toward vehicle so you can access these 3 screws (both sides). Still can be awkward but best chance for success. Wish I could offer you a step by step but my rememberer doesn't work like it used to. I will send you a Link to a thread I had when I did mine. Maybe it will help some and others likely can provide a more detailed and precise instructional advise. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-72-Chevrolet-Monte-Carlo-Body-Side-Molding-Trim-Hardware-Clip-Kit-New/271204197540?hash=item3f2507a4a4:g:7TYAAOSwmtJXViRs Best of luck and it really isn't that hard as far as locations. It has more to do with feel when installing. Doug
