    piecing together the front end and the headlight buckets aren’t lining up.
    AMD fenders and header panel. Can anyone post pics of this area for reference. Thanks

    You are sure that you have them on the right side and with the correct orientation, I had to fight mine for a minute , however the spring should only go on one way

    I think we’re taking about different parts. Take a look at the picture above with the area circled in red. The actual header panel and fender that form the headlight bucket/housing don’t seem to line up

    OH, now I see what you are talking about , I just saw that one bucket sitting on that part and though that was the issue, what does it look like when you close the hood? does the hood line up with the fenders? If yes then you can , assume/hope that they are correct, then see if that lower piece the valance can be pulled up and a little forward, maybe hard to tell with the picture exactly what is going on, I just know that body panels require tweaking to get them into there correct position.

    On another note, that’s a good looking paint job
