Installed the Addco 936 kit last night, really wasn’t a problem. Used the an existing hole behind the parking brake cable, little bigger than 3/8, to mock it up on the car. Then drilled one hole for the front part of the bracket to fully mount the bar. Once the front hole is located and drilled…..everything tightened up with no binding. Really went easier than I expected!!
But, as mentioned before, its not the prettiest thing!!
And, Future boxing of the control arm and reinforcing of the drilled and original holes looks like the right road to go down. This would also eliminate the look hardware sticking down.

I will try and post pictures and how it drives in the future!!
Also checked, I have the biggest front bar out there, 15/16 on my 63 Jetfire. Put an email in to Addco with measured specs of the front bar to see if they have a “suitable already made replacement that could work”.
