    Is the washer jug mount area correct? My NOS generals fit nice but are lacking in this area. Mostly there is no washer jug mount so I would just use that part of the fender to make a patch for my fender.

    Different part number, and higher cost.

    My washer jug mounts to the inner fender, not the fender...? I'll post a pic this weekend of the inner part of the fender in any event.

    Think that was a 70(?) only thing.

    I thought that the 70 didn't have a bracket at all , and bolted strait to the car.

    I think that is what rotinrob is saying - he's asking what that part of the fender (the forward part of the fender's inner structure) looks like to see if the repop has provision for the 70 jug to bolt there. I'm pretty sure the repop I got matches my 74 exactly, and one of the horns mounts there. So...probably won't be correct for 70.

    Was a 1970 only thing bolted straight to the front fender. When I bought the fender from the stealer back in the early eighties the replacements were meant for the latter car inner fender washer bottle. Oh well I don't drive the car in the rain or dirt anyway. But would be nice to have the jug mounted properly for a 70 car.

    That part of the GM Parts fender doesn't look like any of those pictured. It is only half there and cut rather rough at an angle. Still has the one hole though. It is nice to know that that feature carried over to other years so finding that part shouldn't be difficult not any harder than grafting it on anyways. When I can I will post a picture of that part of the fender.
