Q: Fender Alignments
I can not get my fenders to align properly. Anyone have any tricks?
A: Two tricks that you need to do a fender alignment properly.
With fenders off the front end will sag, as fenders are a major part of front end structural support. Support the subframe and body so that there is no sag in the subframe and firewall before bolting the fenders back on. Also make sure the frame is aligned with the body via a 5/8 in rod thru the alignment hole in the front frame to body mount.
The fender fits best at top if it is stretched a little more than the shape it has when off the vehicle. Get your gap right at the top and put spacers in the bottom to spread until the center crease lines up with door. Be sure and do this with no load on the subframe and body.
