How To Install 5.0 Resto 91-93 Fox Body Mustang Inner Fender Splash Shield - How To Install 5.0 Resto 91-93 Fox Body Mustang Inner Fender Splash Shield

There are plenty of reasons why you might need a set of our 5.0 Resto Inner Fender Splash Shields. The first could be that the originals could have been cut or hacked to pieces or could simply be missing splash shields altogether. Taking a closer look, our splash shields are black and are constructed from plastic just as the factory pieces were. Also, all of the structural ribbing is molded into place as well as all of the provisions for the push pins and the retaining screws. Below we have listed all of the components with this kit:

  • (1) LH Splash Shield
  • (1) RH Splash Shield
  • Installation Hardware (Push Pins, J-Nuts, Short & Long Retaining Screws)

Since this car is missing the splash shields we’re going to get right into the installation process.


Installation

  1. You’ll first want to safely support the front of the car with jack stands or use a lift to support the entire car.

  5. First, we’ll go ahead and install the provided j-nuts onto the splash shields. These get positioned onto the three provisions that run the outside perimeter of the splash shield. The flat side of the j-nut will face towards the outside and you’ll want to center these over each hole.

  7. Go ahead and use this opportunity to clean the inner fender area and any other component that you can’t access with the inner fender splash shield in place.

  11. You’ll also want to verify that the front and rear sections of the splash shield are positioned behind the fender as well.

  13. Align the j-nut with the upper screw hole in the fender and loosely thread one of the provided long #8 screws. Run this screw all the way down, but don’t fully tighten.

  21. Install two of the provided short #8 screws into place. Now, these holes are slightly oversized for a reason. You’ll want to “pinch” the outer edge of the hole with the screws. Slightly oversizing the holes allow for adjustability.

  23. At the very front of the splash shield, there isn’t a dedicated spot for the screw. You’ll simply eye-ball the alignment from where the factory screw hole is and thread one of the short screws through the splash shield.

  25. Now you can fully tighten the three screws that you first installed.


  26. Check over your work and then do the same thing for the other splash shield.

  30. Get the car on the ground and you’re all finished. This is an absolute must-have part and we at LMR couldn't be happier with the results. We've been anxiously awaiting this product as we know you the customer have as well.
