    my 1980 has 33 of crap in the fender wells. I want to completely remove the inner fenders to clean them properly and repaint them.

    Do I have to take the fender off in order to remove the inner?

    Thanks

    No. You just need to remove a couple fender to inner fender bolts, Washer jug, coolant overflow, battery tray or charcoal canister, a few bolts under the battery tray and that's about it, the inner fenders come out with a little twisting and turning.

    Thanks kids.

    I've got to clean up the A arms and frame as well. I'll probably re-bush the front end.

    Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

    Take all of it and get it powdercoated. Youll be amazed at how cheap it is

    what a blast from the past. I just came across one of my first posts on this site when I started my "clean-up" about 6 years ago. I knew absolutely NOTHING! Here is a picture of the car in reassembly several years later after I did EVERYTHING my self including the paint. If I can do it, you can do it.

    Heh, I guess it doesn't matter now, but I think I'd take the tire off and drop the inner out that way...

    Having done this a few time, taking the tire off is a must!
