    Check my mod post for more info. But once the fenders are skinned you simply push them inward and they bend around it. I did cut one part of the cowl area to help with it and there are pics in my post. Link is in my signature.

    Well i basically just took a shot in the dark and started before i knew anything about it. but my plan was to build a custom radiator support. I skinned the fenders with those mounts on them so i need to make some custom ones. What was your overall dimension of how wide the front was. Thanks for the help.
