So far we like them. We are limited to the lower two holes due to the Caltracs. Nick made the rear floor to where the brackets are completely under the car, they do not go into the interior.

Excellent idea. Look into Funkhouser front brackets that are billet and have all the hardware countersunk into the brackets so they can be used with caltracs and allow mounting deeper into the pocket

Small world… My 70 TA is at Funkhouser Race Cars right now getting updates.

I was just looking at those brackets last week. They are beautiful. They make a lot of really nice leaf spring suspension parts.

He also has an online stores through Facebook (and Instagram) with more pictures but here’s a link to their website https://www.funkhouserracecars.com/

I swung by the shop. They can make them in aluminum or steel. Your choice. Aluminum is more expensive obviously. They have a bronze bushing which is replaceable as a wear item. They are very well thought out.

Do you recall how much the coil brackets were? Do they still have the file to create more? Do you have the file? I have access to a cnc if you want to share the file with me. I can probably have a few sets made.

I’ll buy the dfx file if you want to sell it.

I need a set of brackets for my build and I don’t want to reinvent the wheel if you know what I mean. lol.

Nick owns the file, I'll ask him if he wants to share it. Keep in mind these will only fit fabricated valve covers and they are for Ign1a coils. (ie Holley smart coil, Mercruiser etc.)

File looks great! I'm having a set cut out of aluminum this week

Your TA is by far my favorite turbo Pontiac. I (and I'm sure everyone else) really appreciates your willingness to share information regarding your build.

Thanks again!
