Spare parts!!
« on: March 09, 2024, 11:49:57 AM »
Hi all, in need of a bit of help, I'm currently putting my truck back together after doing a bit of restoration and I have 2 fasteners that I can't find homes for, they are the same as the ones that attach the inner fender to the outer fender around the wheel arch. Can someone tell me where they go please?
Many Thanks
Graham

I'll get a photo up tomorrow, they're the same as the 7 each side which attach the inner wheel tub to the fender around the wheelarch. Got both fenders on today, had to take the passenger side off to reset the door position but all good now, all bolted up now nice and solid, still got to blast the hood hinges off for paint and put the colour on the hood then all the little bits and pieces that take all the time to get right!

Those should clip into the fender for the inner fender mounting..

Hi Capt. I have all of them, 7 each side and all fitted, these are 2 more which I must have removed but can't find where from! I've searched and searched but can't find a home for them, I had hoped the spares book might hold a clue but can't even find them in there, the illustration shows all the body panels that make up the front end with the exception of the fasteners. The only parts I have left to fit are the hood and the grille but can't imagine they are anywhere there?

They are also used on the Air ram that mounts to the bottom of the front bumper.
