    20200803_164136.jpg Dropped the tank for my 69 skylark and all that's left is the top corner of the build sheet. At least the serial number and build date managed to survive but that's pretty much it. It would've been nice if the whole sheet was under the pad.
    The last place for me to look is behind the drivers kick panel. Is that a common place for flint built cars? There was nothing under the seats

    That stinks but it's more than some of us have found. Have you checked under/behind the dash? Some have found them rolled up and stuffed in the driver's side a-pillar.

    That’s about what I had. I had the folded corner section. Enough to see it wasn’t even correct for my car. Same week. Two days off.

    Yeah I pulled out the entire interior including dashpad and cluster to get ready for a frame off restoration. All that's left is the one kick panel.

    Is the e brake bracket bolted on from the front side of the firewall?

    Finally got the kick panel out and there was no paper work there either. The only thing left in the interior now is steering column and heater box.

    I was curious what trim options it had but on the bright side, now i won't feel guilty for building the car how I want rather than factory original.

    Did you pull the seats yet? Both front and rear had a build sheet stuffed in the springs for my Electra.

    First place I checked was under seats and the rear back section. I didn't check the front bench back sections or center armrest though.
