Hi,

Can someone please give me some quick info on this bracket? There are two on each side underneath trunk floor. I didn't measure in before I pulled the trunk floor out.  I guess I can measure off the underside of where the hatch holder locks in when its dropped down into the trunk of the old trunk floor as shown in pic.  Cant remember what attaches to these brackets.  I need to reinstall underneath on new trunk floor.  Appreciate the help.

After thinking about it its probably brackets for exhaust pipes.

That's what I was thinking but my 71 doesn't have them.  The gas tank straps bolt to the cross member.  Don't know what else they could be for.

Those are just guide brackets to position the gas tank during assembly at the factory.

Thanks...would of never known that.  Noticed that some trunks don't have them.  Wonder why?
