1966 Fairlane fender struts

Putting together a 1966 fairlane gta ...can't seem to locate the fender struts that run to the bottom of the front part of the fender. There are two holes there but I have no idea what bolts there or what they look like. I can't find them anywhere. Anyone have a set lying around or maybe pics of what I should be looking for? Thanks ...

These are the fender braces, from my 66, but I don't remember how exactly they attach.

Re: 1966 Fairlane fender struts

Hello.... If it's like the 62 Fairlane, the one thats is bent on the ends is for the front of the fender where the "lobe" is, and goes to the laterial front beam. It holds the lobe part so it dosen't bend, or flap in the wind as you drive.

The 62 has one on each side. Don't know about the smaller on in his picture. I can't remember if I have a this in a restoration video. There are 200 restoration videos on my 62 on the car's web site and on my You Tube channel.

Anyway, hope this helps.

I once snorted Coke, but the ice cubes kept getting in the way.
