Anyone have a pic of the big block heater shield mounted correctly?  Want to make sure I get the correct hardware. Thanks!

Just to clarify , there is a long finger non air ,short finger air 67/68  bracket and a 69/70 a long finger non air,short finger air version bracket  ;) . As the description in the very informative link indicates in the real world you could likely see ether one on ether air or non air applications. In good concsience I could not deduct for a missing bracket on a BB in concours venue because of the engineering directions however I have never seen one missing on a non molested BB Mustang/Shelby. Just my observations. Bob

They weren't all mounted the same either.  No retaining screws in this '69 San Jose car;
