How do you get those retainers out that are holding the brake and fuel line to the driveshaft tunnel? That's my next effort and I am planning on drilling out the existing brackets, installing clinchnuts and a short screw from the underneath. The 'stock' retainers were obviously used because they were cheap, not servicable.

you have to pry apart the 2 little tabs where they come together at the clip. This will move the inside 'locks' and the clip should fall out of the hole. installing is the reverse procedure. if you fudge the clips you can buy some new ones as they are available from any mustang parts store.

Thanks, Charles. Now I know how to get them out of the car. I still think I'm going to nuke the old retainers and install the clinchnuts with stainless screws.
