    Front fender sticking out further than front door.

    How do I get the front fender to go in a little more so it matches with the front door? Thanks.

    Well first you need to know that it is the fender that is misaligned vs the door. Is the door kind of sprung? "To use carpenter type door terminology."

      Be careful there, the door leading edge must go in behind the front fender when opened as I recall.
      No ... I'm not arguing with you ... I'm just explaining why I'm right ...

      Now go ... and whatever you do ... have a safe trip!


        The door hinges allow adjustment, the fender kind-of does, but to a limited degree. Mostly its done with shims to get any significant movement. Someone has moved something, but if its never been in an accident my bet is on door hinge work and it wasn't put back where it goes

        and yes its a fussy adjustment to get it both looking right and working right. Very easy to have the door hit the fender.

          Is the hood gap parallel with both fenders? if that fender isn't parallel with the hood it's probably the fender that moved. if it is parallel, it's the door. Thankfully that adjustment is adjustable with the fender on the car. Like others said it takes some trial and error and patience to get it lined up correctly
