Engine Filler Panel

I recently purchased the filler piece from Ames and the screws. But I don't think there were no clip nuts ... so what do I need to make this work?

I just checked the e-bay auction.....it says if you have trouble getting it to fit, call him and he will help you. I guess it is a custom piece. Eric

Is that the front filler piece that the lower part of the windshields sit on?

Pontiac, It looks like he purchased a "custom panel" that fits over the stock one, to give a flush look......Eric

Maybe not....looks like a different pic than when he first posted. AMIGO- you can buy the clip nuts, they go in the square holes. Eric

You should be able to find them at most any auto parts store.

I went to Napa tonight and they brought out a big test book of clip nuts but not a one was the right tread pitch ... I'm really wondering if I really need clip nuts (maybe superglue will work .... just kidding ...).
