    If it a 70 the fender should have a sheet metal area built into it to accept the washer bottle. The fender may have been changed at one time with a non 70 fender or an aftermarket 70 fender without the washer bottle area.

    I replaced the fenders on my 70 way back when and I made a plate to fill in that area, then drilled and installed the tank in the correct spot. Never had fluid in it, not used but looks nice.

    No one makes just the filler piece to add to the angle cut fender. You will have to fab one up yourself or possibly a member here will send you one cut from a real 70-76 fender. It depends on how original you want it to appear. Another way is to use the bracket and bottle from a 1969. Also you may note that the bottle in COPO's photo has a square lower left corner. This was a 1970 only version. Part number 3961557. Later versions on Camaro's had a 45 degree miter on this corner. This bottle was also on truck's into the 80's sometime.

I was lucky enough to have the original fenders on my car when i got it so I cut off that section and welded to my NOS one, wish I would’ve thought about making a template back when i did it.
