Right front fender apron


Recommended Posts

I was looking at the replacement apron for a 71-73 and I see there is no insert in the square hole within the horse shoe shaped location. How does the bracket get mounted? Ford illustrations provide no clue

Have you tried the Assembly Manual?

My 65-72 Parts Manual shows an illustration on page 25 in Section 160 of the Chassis section, labeled Fenders, Aprons, and Related Parts.

What Ford used is called a "pierce nut".  Here is a video on how they are mounted when mass producing a part. You can try installing a "caged nut" if you don't care about originality.

Just remember John Wick didn’t kill all those people for a random car. It was a Mustang

Thanks guys for replying. Yes, I have the Ford illustration book. Unfortunately that insert has no reference number. Rio is correct and his statement makes sense. Thanks for the video I figured that was the case. Rio are we looking at 357227?
