    Are you doing away with the bulkhead, or relocating it elsewhere on the firewall?

    You have an automatic? I ran mine through the clutch rod hole. What harness/ system are you running? Mine is Holly HP. If you are careful, ....................it will fit

    Various wiring/ harness outfits like Painless, American Auto Wire, etc should be able to supply large grommets

    I make 2 piece plates to cover the hole and usually use 1/4" rod around the inside hole to eliminate abrasion issues.

    I'm using some mil-spec bulkheads for my wiring harnesses - mounting them directly on the firewall just above the transmission tunnel so they stay pretty well hidden

    i am using the factory computer connectors so you have to drill a 2.25" hole in the fire wall , so i was interested what other people may be doing to dress this hole up with a cover of sorts . thanks for all the ideas so far. ed

    I was thinking of doing the same thing to replace the stock bulkhead connector on my 68. Do you have a P/N or source for the one in your picture?
