Does anyone have any pictures of the fit of the front fender extension? Specifically the bulbis part of the extension that fits just behind the bumper. The two extensions that I just got in fit like kakah, and I was looking for some ideas of what a stock extension fits.

Thanks.

Found some pics with the extensions showing. Not real impressed with the fit of the panels, but I guess that is the way they are supposed to be.

Clint,

Checked mine, and the fender extensions and lower valance are pretty-close in line and tightly laced together.

Are you using repro or all GM???

Everything I've heard about repro stuff is not good.......

Good luck...

Mike

Using all repro parts. Can't afford NOS. The panels have what I would call an "over-bite", where the front part of the fender sticks out a bit further than the front part of the fender extension just behind the bumper. I don't know if this is there to give the bumper some space, or what. But it appears to be intentional.

PS.. Glad to see you are using the board!

Mine's all GM, so I didn't have any problems. I bought all of my panels from Win Kelly back in 1989, when you can still buy GM.....(I should have bought twenty of each type panel back then...I'd be a millionare by now)

Are all the gaps from the rear of the doors towards the front ok???

Maybe you can open up some of the holes to give more adjustment range...

Either way, all I can say is good luck with the repro panels......

Oh yeah, and thanks for understanding my dial-up e-mail issue...

I'm going digital soon.
