All good, 3-4144 is correct. Many older kits are still the incorrect Nova kit 3-4129 and many still list is as Firebird.
You can use subframe connectors with poly mounts, just bolt them in, advisable anyway. Even rubber mounts can still use subframe connectors, the results are just not as obvious!
Thanks Guys for the feed back.

Feel much better going into this part of the build.  Unfortunately i took this week off of work and was supposed to finish up the front end but the rain and cold had other plans for me.

Yes Aus78, I have the 3.4144G bushings.  What's the difference?

Also, I do plan on running some sub-frame connectors for additional support.  I am reading that i should use solid body mounts if i am going with sub-frame connectors.  Is this correct?

Only complete generic belts. I always wondered if the existing rear lap belts could be doubled up so that you'd have two female ends between seat bases off the same bolt, and somehow mount the retractor under/ on the rear shelf with a cover. The only reason being that you could retain the original coloured belts.

No one will ever see the rear seats of mine so it never went further. Even if you found an aftermarket belt set, there may be a custom belt place could swap the belts for coloured pieces instead. Or perhaps use coloured belt strip to replace and extend an original floor retractor so it has an eyebolt buckle to mount to rear shelf off the lower retractor.

But naturally many places won't touch the legalities of slightly modified belts and probably need an engineer to certify half the new belts anyway, if they wanted you to. It's a restoration part that is required, but also with optional improvements in factory style.

Most decent engine paints are also have self priming characteristics. Take the POR15 tin and kick it as far as their well paid advertising goes.
