Do I have the correct backing plate for a 71 Super Bee with power disc brakes?? I find it odd that the two lowest holes are open plus even the very bottom of the opening.

Is there a backing plate with possibly two lower studs for those holes and then when booster gets mounted it goes through the 4 holes above?

Thanks Ron

I do not know if you have the correct plate - but how does it fit on the booster studs?
My E body one sandwiches between the booster and the firewall. No extra bolts or studs.
You would want to cover that gap at the bottom otherwise hot air and any fumes from the engine bay will come in. If you added a little bit of plate to the bottom it would never be seen under the booster.
Thanks Mark!!! I saw your answer on Moparts!!
