Hi,
I'm trying to dial the fit of my front fenders, etc before getting my 1972 nova in primer.

I'm concerned about dialing the fit of the fenders to the lower windsheild trim, etc. I'd hate to paint the car, then find that I have to flex this part alot to get it to get the trim to lay right..

Should I get the car in epoxy primer, install the windshield, then re-mock everything, or is there enough flex in the paint to accommodate? The fenders are modified stock fenders, without a ton of filler in them, so they can probably bend a little bit to fit I'd think?

Thanks
-Nick

The windshield side of the vent panel is supported by the same clips that attach the lower windshield trim. It is very forgiving.
The front and ends of the cowl can be adjusted by shimming at the four front screws along the front edge.
There is no bending of the fenders. With all of the creases they are very stiff. They are, however, pretty adjustable fore and aft and up n down. Shims are something you will get used to.
