I was cleaning out the garage when I found one of the Pinto gas tank shields I had bought before.
That reminded me to find the installation instructions for everyone.
I then listed it on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/160948151106?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
 
To do a the recall correctly you really need what they call campaign #293 that comes with the gas tank filler tube, the 9B007-C shield, and the brackets.   I don't have that.    However, I did install the complete kit on my old 1973 1600 when I had it.
