Installation of this bracket is easy but you will have to make a spacer to fit on the outside of the frame rail. Hopefully you bought this bracket first before you tore out the nut inserts in the frame. If not you will need to get them up for now. Then tap the bracket toward the the outside of the car and make sure the cross bolt lines up. Then measure the gap and make a spacer to fit. A half inch nut and a couple of washers usually work just fine. It's not necessary to get fancy with this because it's not visible after installation. Just tap the spacer in and install the cross bolt. Now torque all the bolts and install the power steering ram. bracket measures 3" from top to center of hole.

It dries to a rock hard, non-porous finish that won't chip, crack or peel and it prevents rust from recurring by protecting metal from further exposure to moisture.

If you would like a semi gloss finish just sand lightly with 400 grit sand paper or Scotch Brite and Paint.
Wow! On a scale of 1-10 guys I have to say this site is a 10 hands down. So easy to navigate, good pictures, clear honest descriptions and fun to read. I visit a lot of auto related web sites and the other guys just don't get it. Amazing that the Cougar people figured it out before the plethora of Mustang guys ever did! Keep up the good work.
