Need help/photo

I'm at the point where I'm about to put the rear bumper back on my Boxster ('99). I can't get the rear quarter heat shields/wheel liners installed properly as I didn't take a picture of their position. So here's what I'm looking for.....

In the rear wheel well, the lower rear portion is removeable and attached to the rear quarter heat shield. I need a good description, or preferably a photo, of the way the very top of that part is installed relative to the chassis.

This first part shows the part in question:


This second one shows what I'm interested in seeing. I want to see if the circled part goes in front of the chassis part sticking down as shown, or if it goes behind it.


As you can see, this part is already cracked. In front, or behind, neither position seems to fit well. That's why I want to see how somebody else's is assembled. If you are going to take a picture, get the camera inside the wheel well and point it at the body line between the bumper cover and the rear fender.

Thanks in advance.

Oh yeah. Forgot to mention that I'm trying to get the car on the road tomorrow (Tuesday).

Could somebody stick their hand in the wheel well and feel if the little inverted "L" shaped piece is in the wheel well, or not?

Looks like it goes under.

Sorry, best pic without having to take off the wheel.
