    If I remember correctly I used a couple of extensions pieced together and a wobble socket.

    A heck of a lot of cussing was involved as well.:haha:

    I had to drop the inner fender on my '74 to get to that nut.
    It's alot easier than it looks. Just pull out the bolts along the lip and on the two ends and let it drop down enough for acccess.

    Good Luck.
