Hello guys !

It's time by now to have son body work on my little pony. My question is about the way to attach the rear valance to the fenders. I do have some drawings, but there are not very detailed, and today my rear valance takes place with 1 ugly screw in each bottom corners.
I would appreciate any tip, and perhaps some closeup pictures from yours...

Thanks and please don't be afraid by my english ;-)

I think you mean the rear quarter panels. Fenders are on the front of the car. I think there should be two long bolts on either end of the valence held onto the valence by clips from the inside, and a nut in the trunk department. The top of the valence is held on by screws. Hope this helps.

Hummm..........I think I know this guy

Here are a few words of advice: don't swear, no mention of renault/peugeot and stay away from Brandon and you'll be safe. This is a tough crowd

The bolts are about an inch long (2.5 CM) for the sides of the valance and slide into a slot in the brackets welded to the back of the panel.
