installing repro body mounts?
I purchased a reproduction body mount kit (consisting of 6 cushion assemblies and 6 cushions) for my '69 from Ricks, and I'm ready to install them, but am a bit uncertain on the proper installation. All 3 locations of the cushions/assemblies are different, and there are different PN's on the repro parts *(but of course not matching the Assembly manual PNs!). The assembly manual (UPC 1-section D1) shows four (3) cushion assemblies per side (items 8, 9, 13, and 15), although item 15 shows it was a mod/update - although my copy of the AIM is not sufficiently legible to ascertain whether it was added or taken away!). The radiator core support location has a smaller hole, so I think that one is clear, but the rear most location in the AIM shows the two assemblies (and I only have one plus a cushion).. Has anyone worked thru these issues and have a nice simple answer to these questions?
Note: My originals were so deteriorated, I didn't make good enough notes when I disassembled and I want to get this right the first time! Any and all help appreciated!
