1. In the November '94 issue of Car Craft ("Fine Lines," p. 28), we gave you the info on how to install a new fender. But, in doing the fender swap we discovered that our plastic inner fenders were complete junk. At the time we didn't know of anyone who was reproducing these items--but we've since learned that Original Parts Group is now making them for our Chevelle. GM discontinued production of O.E.M. Chevelle fenders, so we had to scout around to find a set squirreled away in somebody's warehouse. We snagged one of the last sets of '70 Chevelle fenders from D&R Classic Automotive, but it still has many other year/make/model fenders available. To start the inner fender swap, remove the fender after loosening/removing the fender bolts. Before actually removing the fender, take note of the number and placement of fender shims.
