I happen to pick up a new set of primed front fenders and I want to remove my old ones and install the new ones myself.

Anyone have any insight on how hard it is or any sort of a write up on it?

Let me know if you have any info on it.

Thanks.
George

You have to remove the front bumper (hardest part if you've never done it before because of the clips). There are 3 bolts I beleive on the top part of the fender hidden by the hood (if closed). There are also bolts on the front/inside of the doors. As well as a bolt hold the front part of the fender to the rad support. Wheel liners will have to be un-bolted as well.


This will help you with the front bumper, the rest is kind obvious.

I picked them up from rockauto.com for $80 a piece shipped. Great deal!

Dont forget about the bottom bolts with the undercoat sprayed over them. (On the jack point pinch weld)
