Anyone have any pictures they can send me for the fender mounting. Dallas mustang doesnít seem to understand what Iím talking about when I say every single retainer needed. And I think I have the fender pushed back too far for mounting. Thereís two bolts on the front, and according to what Iíve seen. The u-nuts go on the radiator core support area and then bolts go through the fender. And then Iím confused on the rear upper part of the fender where the bracket from the firewall comes up and attaches to it somehow. I really need an assembly manual of some sort but canít seem to find a downloadable one. Iím getting frustrated. Itís hard to put this thing together when you didnít take it apart haha

Yeah, I'm not aware of a downloadable version. Might have to break down and buy the manual. It's money well spent, especially on a project your size.

Two piece bracket on the right with round hole in middle, is the firewall/steering column seal. There is a rubber seal that goes inside of it. You definitely need that unless you like hot engine air in your crotch. The piece middle/bottom looks like an under dash piece as well, like it hold a part of the wire harness.

The 4 top brackets are rear bumper mounts. 2 are bumper to body the other 2 are for the bumper-ettes.

The bottom one is an accelerator bracket. Mounts to the two rear carb studs.

I think the rusty one is the parking brake cable bracket.

As for you fender mounting, you are on the right track. The front bolts mount to the core support. J-nut/Speed nuts/nut-clips, etc mount to the core support. Then the bolt head is against the fender. At the rear upper, the speed nut goes on the fender, then bolted through the bracket attached to the cowl. the rear lower has a captured nut on the rocker and is bolted through the fender.

Thanks guys. Lots of good info. Looks like Iím gonna be needing lots of retainer and fasteners. Grr. Well time to go shopping lol.

Iíll re-install the fender this coming weekend as well as installing the next one after I pick up my other headlamp bucket.

Hereís where she sits. I can no longer put both fenders on since I have to fix that panel first.

So apparently my dad did a SH###Y job of installing the floor pans in this car. All he did was cut some holes. Line it up and just over lap everything. There was a big gap between. The trans tunnel crossover and the flow pan. Should I cut out more metal and but then and weld them? Is that how typical floor pans get installed? Iíve never done them. Thanks in advance
