1968 Radiator Core

Hi new to forum question i got a body kit from ames (1968 gto convertible) and i am trying to figure out how the body mounts get mounted to the frame. the center of the mount does not fit thru the hole in the core. Am i installing them incorrectly? Does anyone have a picture of how they are installed. Please help

the rubber around the bottom bushing is too wide to fit into the core.

When I purchased the body kit for my 67, the radiator core support did not come with it. It was a separate kit.

How big is the hole in your core support? I purchased the kit from Ames as well and the hole was quite a bit larger than the rubber collar....probably about 1/8" clearance. When you assemble the front clip....you may need some play in that hole so you can move the core supper side to side. I would enlarge the hole vs trimming the rubber. Are you using a 68 V8 core support?
