Default Chute Mounting 67 Camaro

How does one mount a chute on the above. I'm trying to keep cost down and do it myself. The rule book is not exactly clear. Thanks.

The rule book will not give mounting direction. The chute needs to be mounted on a 45 degree upward angle and mounted behind the rear spoiler. The reason is to get the chute in clean air to deploy it quickly and not suck it under the car and into the wheelie bars. The tether should be mounted in line with the vehicles center of gravity height, and to some substantial piece of frame in the exact center of the vehicle's frame width to pull it strait. The mount should include a 1/2" bolt with a sleeve around it to protect the tether from fraying.

Do the mounting kits from Jeggs, etc. have all the hardware necessary to mount the chute correctly?

That is a relative question. They mean to give you everything, and you should be able to work with what they send as an install kit if it is for the chute type you are trying to mount. All the kit has to do is keep the chute from falling off the car and hold it pointed in the correct direction. Read the contents list for the kit and evaluate from there based on your situation.
