removing front fenders
« on: May 08, 2008, 11:03:11 AM »
How much trouble is it to remove front fenders and re-install them.  I see some shims in there?

Not too bad, just mark where each shim comes from and put them back in the same place.

yep but if your body bushings are bad then theres a chance your frame can move causing your car not to realign on reassembly.....sometimes the fenders hold everything together...

The hardest thing I had to deal with on mine were the bolts on the bottom edge. They were rusted solid. It's going to take me some creative engineering to repair everything. lol
