Having a lot of trouble aligning fender skirts and radiator

Post by bdockery81 » Apr 22nd, 2018 1:58 pm

Hey guys I'm midway through my restoration. I've just reinstalled the radiator mount and have been trying to get the radiator and fender skirts to line up properly, but I just am not doing something right. No matter what I adjust, the fenders seem too far backward toward the rear of the car, and the radiator mount seems angled too acutely toward the floor.

I've messed with the shims and radiator mount attachments. Played with the front frame support alignment. Pretty much anything I can think of, but the fender skirts are still need to move forward another half an inch to not rub on the upper control arms.

Any advice is appreciated. Thank You.
