    My OCD is kicking in again. I hope while you do this install you do a wire tuck. If you're going to the block you'll have plenty of room to repaint the engine bay. Also if you know how to weld this will be the time to cover all those holes that aren't needed. I did this with my 94 and it came out great. No more spaghetti wires.

    So i am in a pickle ladies an gents..
    my passenger fender has been driving me crazy, it is aftermarket cuz it was hit before i owned the car.

    I rolled everything in prep for a possibility of putting fr500s on. I had the turbines with the big tires on them so i didnt notice it when it was painted but the fender had a small crease this i knew from the accident i had lack of funds to change it wasn't a big deal.

    But what i didn't realize is that the cheap fender widened the wheel well and from certain angles i can tell. it almost makes it look as if the car has the wrong offset wheels on it. I tried to adjust it an it made a small dent in the wheel arc. I rolled most of the dent out with my knuckles so its not noticeable but how wide the fender is is driving me nuts. Any opinions on what i should do. I have enough paint to do the whole car again so i could shoot the fender and it will match, MY painter will do it for me i just dont no if i should leave good and good alone ?

    Me I would look for a factory fender have your painter re-shoot and re-hang it and call it a day in the end you will be much happier I wouldn't take this fender off until you had the new one ready to go on...that way you can still use it until that one is ready to go on...that me tho...lol

    I am going to find a front fender And my painter will paint it with no issue I will try to find a Ford one if not I will get one from late-model. Finally figured out my low power issue my friend set the fuel pressure regulator wrong it was at 22 PSI turned up to 39 car runs much better!
