On a 1970 mach one we have a piece of trim that i believe is called a grille opening trim and it covers the stone gaurd that gets bolted to each headlight bucket.I think it is that part that gets paintend Argent .It has screws in the back of it that you remove to take it off the stone gaurd.Mine had small 3/16 or so carriage bolts is the slots in the bottom front of this trim piece facing down and then the PO used washers and nylocs to fasten it.Theses bolts slide through a hole and then sode to the slide and the track in the thin metal is suppose to catch the corners of the carriage bolts.Works good in theory but hard to get the nuts off from the front valance area.
That worked fine when tightening but no so much when removing the bolts as the carriage bolts just turned or slipped in the slots.
I cannot help thinking there is a speial fastener that get pushed ito these slots from the top and then regular nuts and washers get used .This would greatly ease the install and removal process.
The po probably figured it would not be his problem.
What does the correct hardware look like ?
ok i understand that piece but how does this trim piece attach to the red piece.mine had small carrige bolts down through the holes in the trim piece going through the red piece and into nutted from the bottom
At each end the end of the trim panel maybe? Tnuts to the stone deflector panel, white plastic is a spacer betweeen trim panel and deflector, and screws go through trim and white spacers and into tnuts?
