1969 GT350 transmission mount bracket
« on: August 01, 2018, 06:08:12 PM »
I am in the process of installing the transmission and motor in my car and need to know what finish the transmission bracket would be, painted Black or natural? The metal bracket that mounts to the tunnel. Any help would be appreciated.

Appreciate the help, it's starting to come together and these little details slow you down.

I am sure I will be posting additional questions soon.

  Small issue:  Try not to sand blast it.  It is natural steel.

+1 . That is if you intend to leave it bare metal. If you do blast it you are welcome to send it to me and I will put it in the metal tumbler for a better look.

Mr. Gaines, you have a big tumbler! That car looks pretty clean under there. I like it like that. That takes a lot of work and money. I can appreciate it.

Yep I needed one big enough for strut rods and control arms.
