    Has anyone purchased a new core support from any of the resto parts suppliers? If so which one and do the bolt holes and body mount locations line up? How does it fit?

    No i don't and bought back in 2015 so i don't have the box anymore. It could be the one classic industries sell just for the fact that SS396 drops ships from them.

    I bought several of them a few years ago because I couldn't get any of them to fit. I ended up going with AMD because it was the closest. I had to drill the spot welds off the frame mounts and re-weld them where I needed them to be. It's possible my car was the issue and not the core support, probably a combination of both. You'll most likely have to end up modifying it a little bit to fit your car.

    I have the same new panel from classic industries, it’s good but not perfect, the right hand side viewed from Inside the car does not match up bolt hole wise to the inner fenders on one location, so you have to redrill either the inner fenders or spot weld new nut onto the panel, left hand side bolted up fine, just not the right
