ID:	1760427Does anyone have a picture of the position of the flat rubber splash shield that was stapled to the front inner fenders on a C/K 54 Commander. I see my original staple holes, I have my new rubber shields but after a hour of flipping mine around I still don't know for sure how it was placed. I don't see a thing in any of my Stude manuals. Mine were long gone when I bought the car so I have no idea. I have the generator off repainting it so now is the time to put these on. Thanks a ton.Click image for larger version

    Not sure if it'll help or not, but this is the left one on my Hawk.

        Isn't it usually a "Smart Phone" that causes the flipped Picture issues?

        They do not happen using a "REAL" Camera and a "REAL" Computer.

            I played with these more this afternoon and I am still baffled as to where the factory stapled these on and how the slits and cutouts are to go. Also how do you put these back on ? I know my air stapler sure won't puncture the steel inner fenders. What do you guys do?

                I remember that some people have used stainless steel wire to reattach the splash shields - same diameter as those original staples. Pushed it back through the same holes that were already there and bend it back against the inside of inner fender.

                    Ok , I must be totally wrong here. I thought the shields went on the engine side of the inner fender. Now I'm thinking they go on the wheel side of the inner fender and the staples went from the engine side thru the inner fender into the rubber shield. Still unsure but looking at pics off eBay.

                      Yes, the rubber goes on the wheel side of the inner fender. The bottom edge of the rubber sits on the flange of the frame rail.

                        Well that makes a difference. What does the dog leg that is notched out fit in to ? How did you attach yours? I guess originally the factory shot staples thru the wheel side and then bent the ends over ? Were the staple ends bent towards themselves or outwards away from each other ?

                          Bent toward themselves. There should also be a three fingered sheetmetal stamping that fits over the lower end, and fastens under one of the steering box bolts.

                            I think I have the wrong shields. Mine have a part # 308810 tag on them. I look in SI and I see they have them as # 304810. I think that is a problem I just realized. The 3 finger metal stamping, is that mounted on the car by the s/g box?

                              I knew they went on the outside (wheel side) and I took the staples out of mine. So I know how they go. BUT, the original request has not been addressed yet ! "does anyone have a picture of the position of the flat rubber splash shield" ,and so on. by the way, I got staples from S. I. Anyone have a picture?
