Title: 1970 Trunk Pinch Weld Cover
Post by: 1970 Snake on December 28, 2017, 08:04:33 PM
Does anyone know what material is used to cover the trunk wheel tub pinch weld and where to get the material.

Hopefully the black one is right for your car since all the suppliers carry them.
I would think the repros have the little V notch out as original, but easy enough to do yourself if need be.

Thanks guys, mine is a Dearborn car, and assume grey is needed.
Additionally to that end where do I get it and also the white 6" long snap tie for the fuel sending wire?

Doing a survey right now of my pictures for the producers. Most likely yours was the gray version

An opaque zip tie of the right size will likely take care fo that for you. Original unused ones are not easy to find when you need one

Is this the one on page 175 part numbers B-10981 or 351053-S?
The thing to do is check the Ford number against that shown for the zip tie in your assembly manual.
If it's not an exact match there's no point, just use a generic one like Jeff suggested.

B-10981 is the closest IMHO to the originals from what I'm measuring  if that helps

Its the same style (releasable) also
