You have to fabricate some brackets to bolt the radiator core support to. It's going to need to be just in front of the steering gear box so the cut to the camaro frame will be there somewhere. The best way is to hang your front fenders and core support on the cab using the upper and lower fender bolts. Block it up in the front so the body lines and door gaps are straight. Make sure it is centered by cross measuring from inside the hood area. THEN...there are two ways. Fabricate your own mounts like I did or cut the front off the original frame where the core support mounted and graft it on the camaro clip. The advantage of number 2 is it also gives you front bumper mounting spots if you use the stock bumper. I'm using a custom bumper so I made my own doing exactly what I outlined above. Mine is on a 55 but the steps are the same.
