You guys have more patients than me. After about 15 min of trying to get the staples in I just attached them with little sheet metal screws painted black. Looks better than the staples anyway I think. Such little details never bothered me, but I guess if you want a correct restoration, such things matter.

I put the shields where I wanted them (and marked them) and used a large needle to poke through. Then when I pulled the needle back, I sat a light colored felt tip on the tip of the needle and made a little dot where the holes wanted to be. Found the holes with the staples, and shoved them through. After you get a couple staples in, then you don't need to mark them anymore- just follow the needle with the staple and push them in with needle nose pliers, and bend them over. Didn't seem terrible, once you got a rhythm going. Easy as pi.

Anyone willing to post pictures of how the complex die cut piece (P/N B165B) is installed?
I called Ames but they don't have any figure or anything to reference.

1968 or 1969 preferred. Could probably figure it out from 70-72 also.

Thanks!
