    Looking for a 70 Camaro firewall carpet guard part # 3973924, needs to be in good condition without cracks. Thanx Lewis 20200613_083030.jpg 20200613_083030.jpg 20200613_083030.jpg 20200613_083030.jpg

    Just curious...is the part number the only difference between the '70 part and later years?

    If you look at the area on the left side that covers the emergency brake cable the 70 has a clam shell shape and the other years are flat, either one will work just depends on how picky you are.

    Another 70 only part...funny when I tossed my cracked one, I didn't even notice a difference to the repop new one. Just looked at it and its flat.

    Yea it seems like such an insignificant issue since either one will do the job just trying to stay the course but it's really difficult on these 70 only parts that are soooooo hard to find it can be depressing, it would be better if ya didn't know. Ha

    My guess on this is that the original mold failed and it was replaced with one that was much easier to make and used less plastic. The mold parting line (place where the mold splits open) follows along the perimeter. Getting the steels to fit tightly around this contour is a challenge. This is where the mold will not close off and flash plastic easiest and make a bad part. Just a guess. There may have been alot of fall-out from these molds.

    Also, the 1971 part is I think the same shape as the 1970 part, but has a different part number. Seems like the shape change came in in 1972.

    These are hard to find in good shape as the stick cars the clutch pedal bottomed against this and cracked the plastic.
