Ok, I am wrapping up my build and have one question. I assembled the front wings off the vehicle and went to dry fit but had a problem on the LH side, does the inner fender need to be cut? Or does it just take some fandangling to get it to fit around the new steering? I didn't mess with it long because I was solo and didn't want to chip the paint, but they both look the same, so my thoughts it that it will fit without any cutting.

sometimes the galvanized inner fender needs "massaging" around the panhard rod bracket and steering box.

Ok one more question, what is the best way to install them? Remove inner fender and install separate, unhook steering, just install a a whole? I just don't want to scratch or chip anything?

I have done the whole thing but I did not care much about paint issues.

I've done it both ways. I do not think it matters much. Helps to have a second person.
