    I have this heat shield which is for the fuel line...i know it is supposed to mount to the front frame but I’m not sure where or in what position. Can anyone clarify for me? A picture would be great!

    Would be helpful to know what year your car is... sorry I don't recognize it

    My truck has one like that on the side of the trans to protect the harness from exhaust heat.

    Good memory BillyDean, I have not seen that part either, on 70-71 or a 79 Z-28's and I have had mine in several pieces

    Thanks guys for the responses!
    My Camaro is a 70, this isnt from my car. Bought it from one of the Camaro/Firebird parts wholesalers on eBay in case i needed it. If memory serves me right I believe they listed it as allegedly coming off a later model 2nd gen car. Thankfully i bought it on the cheap! Guess I will hold onto it for a bit in case it can serve a purpose and then back on eBay it will go.
    If anyone else can shed light on it please let me know.

    Im pretty sure thats the shield for the rubber part of the fuel line right at the end of the subframe.

    That’s what I was told originally, but it looks to only fit one way and that is with the triangular portion near the rectangled end downward. That being said it doesn’t make much sense as the fuel line shouldn’t drop that low and it reduces ground clearance. Can’t find a picture anywhere online either.

    That is correct, on the passenger's side subframe, outboard.
