first they are off, then on, did you paint them off the car then install? The connection between the front and the fenders is usually brazed and leaded, and takes a bit of stress. I replaced one of mine, bolted it and bondo'd the gap, and it did not hold up, there is now a fine line crack, so FYI. I just don't want to see you go to all that work and be disappointed, like I sort of ended up, live and learn I guess. It is interesting to see the front nose off, you get a great idea about how much that holds the front together. Very nice on the restore. It is a slippery slope tho, thought I'd just make a daily driver, but once I saw the paint I had to go with new trim, etc, etc, etc, but STILL a daily ( well weekend) driver and the only car I own.

i bought new fenders, doors and a nose from bmw. i think its worth it since all the seems in those parts had major rust. the front fenders were welded in place, on the top and bottom joint. i think this should hold it secure.
