    Sorry I didn't know that questions were so closely scrutinized especially by those not used to doing so
    Yes it is the fender skirt support.
    Yes I figured out they were spot welded to the upper fender support and the door edge return on the fender.

    Sorry for scrutinizing your questions, but adding pictures helps and adding multiple pictures of the what, where, and how, help even more.... If someone can see what you see, it adds to the exchange to insure you get a concise answer. Thanks!

    barnwagon: Most folks just cut out the rusty portions and weld in good pieces to replace them, rather than attempting to replace the entire original piece. In fact, you could probably 'make' the lower inner reinforcement piece if it's not available, and I know the lower fender section is available.

    Referring to that part as a 'fender skirt' totally confused 99% of folks, greatly eliminating possibly great feedback you may have gotten. I would refer to it as an inner reinforcement panel for the back end of the FRONT fender, although I'm sure there's a 'chevrolet term' for it somewhere. Most parts on cars (especially older cars) have a dozen different 'names' that various people use, and that is why a PHOTO is almost necessary when you are referencing a part on your car...

    After scrutinizing a lot, I'm still confused.

    barnwagon, did it occur to you that the scrutiny was because these guys are trying to help you?

    the help is appreciated.
    The only suggestion I might make is for those applying vinegar instead of honey as it will surely deter those from participating if the responses are as caustic as some. Learning how to post the pics and how to size them takes some practice. some patience is in order.

    I appreciate the info and the proper name so that the confusion is eliminated.

    Note: Most (or all?) of the available reproduction 'A Arm dust shields' are NOT made like the originals (with fabric reinforcement), instead are just cut out pieces of rubber. There are sources for cloth-fabric reinforced rubber much more similar to the original dust shields, IF you want to go the trouble to be *more original* and make your own.
