    On another note, this time around I will jamb and assemble then paint assembled.

    Unless I am missing something, and considering the fact that I am likely going to attempt what will be a tri-stage pearl job, I will need it to be together. PLUS if I painted it and started putting it together only to bust paint of fresh edges. . . .I would crap.

    It can be pretty discouraging to put it all together, spend a lot of time lining it all up then busting it apart again just to put some color on it.

    I've been asked about my inner fenders before. My inner fenderwells are mounted "inside" the outer fender. They were like that when I bought the car.

    I think it would look better and it looks like the inners I have are ready to accept the clips and flush mount. Who knows, maybe I have the wrong ones.

    Tire slop from the road has a better chance to into that joint and rot your fender lip that way.

    Sometimes they're reinstalled this way to provide additional tire clearance. Doing so can eliminate tire rub when the tire/wheel fit is very close.
