Default glued on fenders.

i recently decided to re haul my engine bay and in doing so i removed the fenders which were glued on all the way from bottom to top... is this necessary to put back on to the vehicle? and has anyone else experienced this? thanks

Ummmmm.... no.... No body panels (on the outside) were glued on. and your fenders are not even close to your engine bay. Pics?

I wonder if it was really a sealer that ran between the fender and apron?

The fenders should only be attached with bolts. No glue, no sealants, and no welds.

Just a quick related question. Can/should they have strip caulk between fender and apron? I swear mine did when I tore it down so I put it back when I put my fenders back on.

The only reason that I could see putting anything between the fenders and the aprons would be to serve as some sort of vibration isolation so that you don't get any potential metal-on-metal rubbing. The only purpose that I can think of for doing that would be to protect the paint, but properly tightened bolts would probably prevent this as well. There's not really any need in weatherproofing that joint since both sides are open to the elements.

All I have ever seen is dum-dum (black strip caulk) between the fender and apron but not all the time, either.

they were held on with something like a black silicone and chunks of rubber that were 1/2 inch thick. total of 30 bolts to each fender and not including the glue that took me 2 hours extra to slice and pry at to get the fender off. and the reason i took off the fenders is because someone put spacers under them to hold them up higher to flush meet the hood but the spacers were pieces of metal that bent down into the engine bay.

Sounds like somebody was trying to hide some crash damage...

Is the car stock looking or has it had some gastly body mods done to "improve performance"?


What year/model car?

My 68 had the black sealant but not thick at all. It does sound like some body damage. Can you adjust the hood down instead of raising the fender? Perhaps jsut poor body fitting after a respray?
