My two fenders have been changed over the years so I dont know what original ones look like . If somone has pics. of the upper part of the fender were the hood bumpers are that will help thanks.

    Ralph,
    I believe the nuts you are looking for are crimped in place & not welded (two each side). I had the same issue with a replacement fender I obtained; one nut was missing. Close examination led me to believe that these are only crimped/swedged in place. With a little persistence I was able to remove one from my old fender; after cleaning it I increased the depth of the 'groove' with a small hacksaw a small amount. Using a small chisel (slightly dull) I managed to install it in the replacement fender. As far as I know there isn't any difference in these from 70-81 (I have fenders from 73, 76 & 80 - all the same).

    Don't know if it's correct terminology, but we always referred to them as "capture" nuts, or inbedded nuts.
