Fender installation predicament

If you've seen my progress on the "What did you do with your truck today" thread, you'll note the I just installed my inner fenders. Trouble is, there appears to be no way to get the outer fenders on over the inners.

Should I bolt the inners/outers together first and then install both as a unit?

Re: Fender installation predicament

When I saw that post I was thinking the same thing, I believe the inner fenders have to be on and they are installed as an assembly.

Question asked and answered!

After fiddling all morning struggling to install the outer fenders, I finally gave up, tore everything apart and bolted the inners and outers together as a unit. Result: fenders were installed in 5 minutes.

Re: Fender installation predicament

I think I remember going though that over 30 years ago but I always seem to have to do things twice because something doesn't jive the first time.

I have found DIY actually means DIO (do it over --and over). Perseverance wins the day
