  4. 1971 Machone fastback Im trying to find out how the bolts secure to the fender apron for the battery tray bolts, I know the top secures with a press in nut on apron and the support bolt on bottom to the clip, but how do the bolts that go through the tray (under the battery) secure to the fender apron. I had no apron left on my car when i bought it and the NOS replacement I have and already welded in does have nuts in the area. Im going concours and this is one thing I cant find info on. Any help is appreciated Peter
