    cardboard? front fuse panel cover

    Did the front fuse panels originally have a grey fiberboard or cardboard cover? It seems to me I have seen this item in pictures but my car (1972) hasn't one and my parts book doesn't show one either. I don't have a picture at hand, but the latest Excellence has a picture of it in the article about the restored RS.

    The cardboard is still available. There are pictures of it and part numbers in this thread:

    Stoddard has them for sale, $60, as advertised on page 37 of the Feb. 2007 issue of Excellence. Historically these have been hard to find, so this ad surprised me when I saw it. The battery straps advertised are not seen often either.

    My car still has one, I would call it hardboard over cardboard since it is not flimsy or corrogated, though it does bend to make an arc over the fuse panels, and the outside is silver/grey. There is a clip that hangs midway down to support the hose to the charcoal canister, at least on MFI cars (not sure about carb'd).

    Eagle Day (www.eagleday.com) sells a wiring clip very similar to the clip on the fuse shield.

    Thanks all. Geez, another $40 - $60 part to add to the effort to make it look like new.

    Resurrecting this thread because I am finally getting around to the small details of my front compartment on my '72 S. The link in the thread with photos is not working, so can someone please post a photo of how the grey cardboard fuse cover attaches to the clip shown above by the front fuse panel or at least describe where the clip goes that holds the cover over the fuse panel? There was piece of Velcro holding mine on when I got got the car and that can't be right. Thanks.

    Yes, perfect! Found the clip on Sierra Madre's website. Is the clip the only item that holds it in place?
    Thanks for the quick reply.
