thanks for the help so far, only a few more panels to go.

so far i learned the rear vertical splash guard mounts with the bottom 90º flange towards the back, but where does it mount to the frame?

i could use a pic, haven't found one on the build sites

NiceGuy,
Here is what I did on the drivers side, passenger is similar. I also added an aluminum bracket from the lower inboard side of the panel to the gas tank flange. Make sure if you do this you drill the hole close to the edge of the flange to prevent any potential fuel leaks past the flange weld. I also added an aluminum bracket to hold the lower outside of the splash guard to the underside of the wheel well body openning. I was trying to keep the splash guard from "flapping", you can see the button head screw head unless you get down and look under the body. Definitely need the body on and aligned to fit the panels. I removed everything before painting, then simple rivet and bolt up during final assembly.
