Ken, Perhaps we should collaborate on a new thread on this topic. I think it would be useful to many and like the trans mount I am sure there are others people can contribute. Such a source would have saved me a bunch of time and a couple mistakes.

Here are some others I noted unique to the 68' but probably not all:

Reverse threaded driver side lugs and front axle nut
Return spring on clutch slave (if original)
Single clip on grill heart
Single Circuit brakes with Lockheed Brake servo
GT rounded bumpers w/o overrides
Carello turn / park lights mounted on top of front bumper
Rear lights Altissimo or Carello small style with reflector in center
No fender signals
Inner headlights wired with mains on low
Outer headlights in buckets mounted to body tabs
Center console switch runs dash lights not fogs
Zagato buttress style front seats (adjustable headrest on passenger only)
1750 badge on the trunk lid (Alfa Milano badge recessed in trunk)
chrome rear license plate mount
dual Carello frog eye license plate lights
GT "cross over" airflow to carbs
coil on right wing
wiper bag on passenger firewall
wood hellebore steering wheel
Two vents on front cowl behind bumper
dual carbs: Weber/Dellorto/Solex
two dash turn signal indicators
That is some great information to have! Ive been scratching my head over a bunch of those and now you've illuminated even more.

Sorry about the hiatus. I went to CA for a month and ended up rebuilding a 2l for my spider. Im finally back and working on my gtv again. Updates on metal work and the fun engine bits coming soon.

Welded and cleaned up a bit. Tig welding against a piece of copper makes it easy and helps to get full penetration and almost no clean up on the back side

Lower Rad support

I ordered a reproduction Radiator support but was very disappointed by the accuracy. I ended up using some parts from the old as well as some new metal to repair the rust damage. The reproduction would not work without some modification and even then would not look at all correct and it didn't fit the radiator.

Dolly/Tipper

I have needed a way to roll the car around for a while and I will soon need a way to work on the bottom side of the chassis, so here it is. The dolly bolts to the rear t-bar mounts and the front lower control arms mount. They seem to be the strongest options, especially because I will need to do work near where the steering box and idler mount, which was the other option. The L sections bolt to either side of the dolly so I will be able to tip it on its side.
