Thanks that helps a lot. Is there any reason why the drivers side piece (04393) is plastic and the passenger side is metal?The assembly manuals Steve suggested are great resources. You don't realize how many different pieces it took to screw one of these beasts together until you have one completely torn down to a bare body shell! The body and interior manuals will probably be the most helpful, but there are electrical and body weld and sealant manuals that are useful, but you may use them less often.
The illustrations below indicate the locations of the two parts you inquired about.

WOW, I guess I better do a little more research. Thanks everyone for the reply's, this will help me put my car back together.The Body and Part illustration CD, then the Assembly Paper manuals with the illustrations are the first place I look. As a last resort, I go to the Master Parts ^ Accessories CDs for 1965-72 Ford Ford Car MPAC or 1973-79 Ford Car MPAC, these don't have pictures and they are a challenge sometimes to search thru, but it's all there. About 20 years ago I picked up a good reference parts book published by Warner Robert Publishing (also known as Robert Lane) called the 1969-1973 Mustang & Shelby Parts Identifier. It was printed back in the mid-90s and revisions were available for a few years, unit Ford sued the company, I presume over licensing rights. I particularly liked the notes on color codes used on many of the parts listed. My copy is 120 pages, but I don't think it was a complete listing of all parts. If you can find a copy of it but it.View attachment 77443 View attachment 77444 View attachment 77445
Hemi, I bought the CD from HiPo Parts. It is a very cumbersome format. Unless I used it frequently, I'll never get efficient at finding PN's.Link to free download of the MPC. It's in sections and can be cumbersome to use.
I recommend the $25 PDF MPC manuals from Forel Publishing. They are nicely indexed and are generally very clear and easy to read.

If you don't have the 71 shop manual, it's another must have

I wonder if the Forel version is easier to navigate? Do you happen to know?
I found the link. You will want to open the Illustrations folder and download the individual section you are interested in OR download the 138MB FP-7635 file. I had downloaded a single file for the text document as well but I could not find it here (although I do have it but it is 369MB). https://www.squarebirds.org/Manuals/1965/The MPC are available as a free download. I do not have the link... sorry . It can take a bit to figure out but it has provided me part numbers for things not shown in the repro assy manuals....or perhaps I just couldn't find them in there.
