Preparation for the Rear End
#1
The mustang has sat long enough, I finally got around to priming the trunk pan, now my final question is:
Does anybody have the measurements to the two tabs that are on the bottom side of the trunk pan?
my trunk floor was rusted out too badly to get accurate measurements, since the part was already pushed out.
I'd appreciate it if anyone could take the time out of their day to measure it for me from their mustang, whenever they have time

I believe their purpose is just to center the fuel tank. My 73 fastback was so rusted out when I got it, there was no tank there, I was able to salvage those brackets and put them on the new pan but still have not put a tank in yet. Nice pics, looks like you have a better starting point than I had when I got mine. Good luck with your restore.
