    I looked and couldnt find ,I was going to take off old cable but then theres no way to slip over ends. The fire wall pad covers it up somewhat.

    I see there is one for a 1970-2 Chevelle that might work. I have adapted parts from other Chevrolet cars over the years .Since they don`t make them for ours.

    I saw that as well, but I already bought the cable. Why this parts is so hard to find is beyond me. Mine is still in one piece but I'm sure Ill destroy it when putting the new cable thru it. When most grommets are for 67-69 but nothing listed for the 2nd gen cars. The one above sez its for 67 thru 89 makes me wonder if its a miss print. ( link states 69-81, but when you click on it it sez 69- 89) So far from what I gather, the hole size in the firewall varies from gen 1 to gen 2, etc....
