finally finished painting the 69 and need advise on mounting the side louvers .
is there a trick to mounting the louvers-the assembly manual shows 3/8 diameter holes used for mounting my question--is there a trick to getting the rubber nuts behind the fender--the front two louvers can possibly be held in place using the adjacent louver holes but how do you attach the last two louvers? i have the correct hardware for attaching the louvers but there must be a way other than force the rubber nuts through the 3/8 holes while attached to the louvers.Ermm

Use a long screw in the plug, and just push it in.  Pushing on the lip of the plug makes it fatter, but a screw stretches the plug, making it a little skinnier.  It wouldn't hurt to add a little dish soap for lubrication.
