    Hi all,

    I'm assembling the front of my 69' Charger and noticed an unusual amount of space between the PS of the grill and fender nose. I did not do the body work on this car and the shop that did closed long ago.

    The DS gap looks good to me.

    I was told both fenders are original but who really knows.

    Is it possible the splash shields (and surrounding seals) behind the headlights were tacked in
    a bit too wide pushing the fender out?

    Can I give the nose of the fender a good push in and see if it tightens up?

    Or is this just par for these cars?

    Thanks,

    -Dave

    Looks like the right fender is rolled out above bumper.

    could have / should have been corrected prior to paint........ this is why pre-paint mock up is always necessary

        Thanks for the input I will try to correct it but if I can't it's not the end of the world.
