Hello all. I'm finishing up the install on the front fenders and have a question on the fender clip placement. See pic below.
Q - does the u-clip get attached to the main body flange of the car or does it get attached to the fender itself?
Does it matter based on how the panels line up in the end? I would guess the finish would be goal?
I should have taken a better photo of where it was before i pulled it off; but you know how that goes... 7 years after the fact... ;0
Thanks

The nutplate goes on the fender. The bolt goes in from the door side.

Thanks Royce. I started out that way, but one of the fenders seemed not to line up with the front cowell very well. It's off about a 3/16" maybe too far forward. Maybe i can bend the tap on the body back a little and the tab on the fender forward to give me a better finished fit.
