'68 Fender Splash Shields

The question was asked about the front fender wheel well splash shields found over the A-arm mounts and front area of the wheel well. These are rubber material and are held on by steel staples.

This is from my '68 Lemans and may be all the same for the '68-'72 A-bodies as the frames are about the same.

The A-Arm shields are attached on the inside of the wheel well ans stapled from the underside while the front shields are overlayed onto the wheel well and stapled from the outside. I am sure spacing is somewhat random and you can see in one photo that the staple never connected with the rubber sheet.

The A-Arm shield is basically a rectangle and I measured from the bottom of the wheel well cut-out to the edge of the shield. The top section I did not measure as you can easily guess placement above where the staples will go - just above the stamped contour.

The front shield is die-cut and contoured. Looking at the underside of the wheel well gives you the best means in locating it. You can see that the back half seems to just about line up with the bottom edge. I was more concerned with the front measurement which would get your placement just about correct while having the rear area of the shield even with the lower edge. The material is thin enough that you could easily trim it if needed.

You should be able to click on the photo once, and then click on again to enlarge.

PJ,
That helps a lot - thank you very much!
Looks like some (dis)assembly will be required to place those on the rear outside of the wheel well at the back/bottom aligned with the lower edge of the frame.

I have the repo splash shield kit provided by the previous owner. (May 4th is the 2nd anniversary of my ownership - heading into the 3rd driving season!) but I'm probably going to wait until the repaint I'm planning to have done in a few years install these as shown in the pitcures.
