Figured I'd throw up these pictures for anyone removing front fenders. Check the photos and reply if I forgot anything


(I'VE JUST PICTURED THE LEFT FENDER ON A LHD CAR)

** Not pictured, the clips that hold wiring in, you'll need to disconnect these as well.

just know:

* you have to remove rubber bumper, footwell trim, the glovebox, headlight connections, turn signal connections and antenna to get at it.

* you want everything very well lubricated (as everything else on this car.. the easiest jobs for some are the hardest for others). I got very lucky that none of my bolts/screws were frozen .

* Hardest part is getting at the top bolt inside the hood and the ones near the radiator

-- I could see where some people would need to remove things nearby radiator to get these fasteners loose

* you'll want a stubby wrench+ socket to to the fender bolts inside the wheel wells

Hope this is helpful

Hey, glad this was all helpful.

So, to answer your Q:

I wanted to see the condition of the metal and clean the area up. Ive been slowly trying to preserve the car and clean it up

moisture and debris seems to collect there and sit. Also, when i bought the car, it had a leaking master cylinder that did some damage.

So, just cleaned it up, waxed everything and threw a coat of fluid film on the area.
