pin size

The pins should be smaller than the ones for the 1/4 panels.

script hole size

I measured the distance on the holes on the left front fender cap.The distance between the first and the last hole is 3 1/4 inches. Could this be a mercury script? Its an early 69 or is it just a (smaller) cougar script. The cougar scripts I have are all 4 pin.

The script with the short curved leg on the "r" is for the left front fender extension. The rear quarters have a long straight leg on the end of the "r".
Did the 69 have a Mercury script on the trunk lid? I can't remember. I know my last one did, but I may have put that there. I don't believe that my current one had one. I know it had the XR7 letters on the right side of the trunk lid.....

Are the scripts from '68 and '69 different? I have a whole garage full of them (off of '68s that my dad and I have parted out) back home, and the pins never seemed to line up... is this a quality control issue or are there different pin placements?

Guys I likely have the sorrect fender script with curled "R". The Cougars and Eliminators said Cougar on trunk lid after a certain build date. 69/70s do not say Mercury anywhere. The 69/70 xr7s say xr7 on trunk lid
