Thanks for responding. The fenders are sitting behind the car...obviously not mounted. The inner fender well was mounted to the core support. I did mount the right fender and it's 1/2 inch off...or close to it. I think I figured out a way to shim the down bar to push the subframe down. Before I find out if it will work I have to get some longer bolts at the hardware store. Will do that tomorrow.Where are the fenders? Have the downbars already been adjusted to get the front end at the proper angle? What is holding up the front of the fender panel right now?
The firewall side of the hood hinge bracket is tightened down after all of the above are proper.
