See pic below. Which is the correct orientation of these type of nuts?
Open side out/away from the head of the clip, as pictured, or opposite of how it is installed in the pic?

Your question being in the "Concourse" section, I believe that the following should be noted :

1) The nut you pictured (#8-32 Spring Steel Zinc Finish Self-Locking Hex Pal Nut, aka stamped steel hex nut, Ford Part # 45203-S), were only used on the LH and RH Rear
Quarter Extensions, 3 on each. This was true for Fastbacks, Coupes and Convertibles (picture attached).

2) The actual Trunk Molding on Fastbacks, according to the 1967 Body Assembly Manual, used 7, push in Nylon clips in the middle (Ford Part # C7ZZ-6342527-A,see attached),
and two studded clips (like the one you pictured), one on each outboard end, and attached with stamped acorn nuts, Ford Part # 377522-S100 (picture attached). Interestingly, the Ford Service Part for these is 377523-S, a stamped, washer head hex nut (see attached).

3) The Trunk Molding for Coupes and Convertibles was attached with 9, studded nylon clips/fasteners (again like shown in your picture), but each was attached with a stamped
acorn nut, Ford Part # 377522-S100.

Hope this helps.

Bob
