    Do I need to remove the front header panel and / or lower front valance to remove the right front fender correctly? I was not sure if the front fenders could be removed w/o messing with the front parts, due to alignment, body fit, etc...

    Appreciate any advice for the job.

    Thanks!

    Probably have to completely take the headlight buckets out. There are three bolts there, two at the top of the header and one at the bottom. Plus the lower valance bolts.

    You also have the bumper mount, and the wheel house bolts to remove.

    I took the header panel off because I did both sides.

    Bolt count

    Greetings, I would do a search in the archives here on the site. I found an awsome bolt count and location that I had used to pull both of mine on an '80z.
