 Even though we are working on a fender and hood, all the bodyline adjustments start with the doors. The quarters and rockers are fixed on the body, so all the body gap adjustments will be established from these two pieces of the body. Working forward, the doors will be lined up first, and then the fenders will be lined up against the doors, then the hood will get lined up between the fenders. Our doors were aligned perfectly, so we could move right into the fender install, but if your doors are not lined up, here's how to go about it. The bolts that connect to the front edge of the door will dictate the in and out adjustment, while the bolts on the body will dictate the forward and back adjustment. Set the in and out adjustment first by lining the front edge of the door with the lower rocker and the A-pillar. Then move the hinges around until you have an even gap at the rear edge and along the bottom. You may need to adjust the same hinge a few times before the door is perfect.
