Brian, The side bolts are hidden, and do go through the flange on the fenders. The upper bolts were on the surface on the original cars - the gas tank cover goes on top of a flange on the back of the body, with the top edge just under a small lip on the body. The picture in gelcoat shows the lip. Mine are on the surface like the originals - lots of guys with fiberglass cars want that smooth look with no bolts showing.
