    Re: Front Clip Removal... Need Quick Help!

    Lets see....Theres 2 under the cowl top panel, (1 each side) 2 at the bottoms of the fenders coming from the underside of the rocker headed out, right by the doors. (1 each side) there is 2 (again 1 each side) that goes from the inner fender well to the fire wall. 2 (1 each) inside the tops of the fenders inside the door jamb at the front. And the 2 at the radiator support. I think thats it. [​IMG]

    I have a few pics that may or may not help, of my 86 w/ the nose off. In the right side pic you can see some of the mounting points, that are "hidden".

    Yup, those ones under the cowl panel were the trouble makers. Thanks Man! Everythings off and the old motor is on its way out. Thanks again.
