:uhoh: I just bought a 68 parts car last weekend and was fishing through some of the parts today and found these lying on the floorboards. WHat the HEL1 are they!?! :lol2: The guy was trying top switch it to an XR7, he had bought an overhead console and I was wondering if these might be part of the mounting brackets? Or are they just something un-important he wasted time blasting? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Scott,
These look like the diagonal braces found behind the rear seat between the floor to the rear deck if I am not mistaken. The mount for the upper console is usually longer as is spans from one side of the roof to the other.
Best Regards,

Definitely trunk braces. If you pull the top half of you back seat out, I bet you will find spot welds on the axle hump and package tray that match the holes in these.

Thanks guys. I've never seen the over-head console braces before except for in e-bay pics and didn't think these looked right.
Oh well, I guess I'll start my search for a set of the overhead braces on the net somewhere!
