Does anyone have a picture showing the relationship between the tab on the frame, the rear stay # 609137, the clamp #602167, and the (currently bent up) tab on the rear wing? Thanks

Thank goodness you were asking about a fender. I was afraid what this post might have been about!

602167 goes way up at the top rear of the rear wing, it is not connected to the stay. Here is a photo that attempts to show the clamp:

The stay is 601937. Sorry I don't have a photo handy, but it just bolts to the tab on the fender, and the tab on the frame.

Boy, if it weren't for the drain hose, I wouldn't have a clue as to what I'm looking at! I've got to take my lap top down to the workshop and get oriented. BTW, the clamp fit beautifully to the stay at the fender with the clamp end up against the inner fender making it really rigid. Go figure?

I was thinking the same thing! Phew.

Now the neon lights I put under the car, those are cool.

Sorry, I know it's not a very good photo even after I tried to "improve" it a bit. Only one I had handy, taken before the fenders were removed. It's really tough to get a good photo up inside the fenders!

Which reminds me, I still need to put one of those clamps back. The body shop couldn't figure them out.
