That trim piece has bolts with special clip/heads that engage the u-shaped part of the trim.  The studs with nuts are accessible from inside the trunk.
Thank you.

Cleaned up the passenger side inner wheel well and test fit panel. Things lined up pretty good going to have to massage the outer well wheel

Quick question for anybody that has been to one of those Carlisle Chrysler events.? I'm just curious if sheet metal is cheaper there since your not going to be paying for shipping. Looking for some 71 cuda fenders and i have found some for 386 each wondering if i could find a better deal there.

Make sure you spray some Rust Bullit or something similar on the inner fender wells, the new out fender wells, frame rails, etc,. before you do the final assembly of those new quarters.

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.
