body work

Any helpful advice on replacing the right front fender on my '91? At what points is it attached, and what will I have to remove to get at those points?....woody

Re: body work

Yeah: buy NEW OEM sheet metal. It fits better than aftermarket stuff, and usually costs about the same - mine cost $30 less. The hardest bolts to get to will be the ones connecting the fender to the valance between the bumper and the grill. There are 2 above that holding the fender to the core support, 2 more at the hood hinge holding it to the firewall, 1 in the area of the open door hinge near the bottom, and 1 below the fender between the door and tire. There are also a bunch of little screws and 1 bolt holding the plastic wheelwell to the fender. You'll also have to pull the hood support bolt, the starter relay, the battery tray, the jack bracket, and some stuff I'm forgetting. While you have it off, be sure to clean the rubber dump valve that's full of leaves and crap - it feeds the funk that your A/C sucks in. And it's also the best time to align your door so it shuts right.
