are you talking the actual bucket or the rectangular trim around them? I think the buckets had a metal ring on the backside and were screwed thru the bucket and fiberglass into the sheet metal in the back with sheet metal screws. the rectangular trim plates were screwed on with 1/4 x 20 phillips bolts. some had 4, some had a lip that slid into the hood near the middle and just had 2 bolts.
