When installing the front fenders on a 72 Chevelle are there all tricks? Do you mount the inner fender to the fender be fore installing? Do you install the inner fender to the car first then the fender? Or the fender then the inner fender? I appreciate any information/sharing of experience on this matter this is the first time for me.

Thanks again

I mount the fenders first, get everything aligned right, and then install the inner fender.

You need to have the hood on so you can get the hood to fender gaps straight.
