I installed one of their systems on an original paint '72 Trans Am survivor I used to own and it fit like a glove. I have my original paint '70 SS454 survivor on the rack as I type ready to install another Gardner system.

Both my Survivors have the Gardner system.
Itís a one man job as the fit is perfect.

In 1966 all GTOís (manual and automatic) received the resonators at the end of the tailpipe.
Gardnerís resonators are almost dead on to factory, plus the expanded end of the tailpipe mates perfectly to the resonators.

I had a pair of NOS resonators in my stash which I elected to use on my Ď66.

Thanks, Chris Terry.
I agree the systems are spot on, fit like a glove, and eric is easy to deal with.

On a side note...
The 66 GTO system did you enhance the weld on the gardner resonator? The weld appears aluminized or coated in the comparison photo VS the on the car shot appears as fresh Heat bluing from a weld.

I ask because as original Camaro chambered systems had the pass exiting tailpipe welded to the chambered pipe... I do the same. I was going to rub some silver paint into the weld, however the NOS piece you have has a very prominent weld showing and makes me wonder whether I should leave the "fresh" weld with heat bluing etc.

Sorry, as I just now revisited this thread and read your question.

No, I didnít do any modifications to the the Gardner resonators. Thatís how they looked out of the Gardner box.
The NOS resonators I used obviously show the factory weld, which I prefer.

Thanks, Chris
