"Factory Vintage Air Brackets"?
I haven't opened my kit yet, does it come with brackets from Vintage Air?
I purchased the DSE mounting bracket thinking I need it

VA kit comes with brackets. The idea behind the DSE bracket is to avoid screw penetrations through the firewall for guys wanting a clean look. No other reason to use it as far as I know.

I just welded some bolts to the inside of the firewall before the firewall was painted. I didnt want anything penetrating either

Default 1968 Fitment

I just bought one these brackets for my Gen IV VA unit since the body man was suppose to weld in studs before painting the car...which he didn't do and I didn't want to use the brackets that came with the unit (since I smoothed the firewall). My car is a 1968 Firebird (I know this bracket is strictly for 1969's) and the bracket seems excessively long. Has someone put this in a 67-68 and if so how did you get the bracket to fit? I see where it fits on the dash brace behind the center console but have no idea where it hits on the passenger side.

You will have to bend the bracket where it bolts behind the center consol and where it bolts to the side of the of the dash by the a pilar. I donít have any pictures but thatís what I did. Go ahead and order it and it will make sense for you
