View Full Version : Body: Front Clip, Spacer Question

05-21-2015, 01:06 PM
Reassembling a front clip on a 1965 Wagonaire. Using new old stock Studebaker fenders, inner fenders and headlamp panels. Reusing original radiator support.
I now have a larger gap at top of fender on the cowl end than at the bottom edge of fender by rocker panel.
Question...if I install more of the frame to radiator support spacer shims, will this close my top of fender gap?
When I took the car apart a few years ago I noted it only had one shim per side and replaced them in their original positions. This was of course with the original sheet metal, all replaced now with new. :confused:

Thanks Warren! I got your message and will do as you suggest.
Haven't been out to garage this week due family visits from Vermont followed by a wedding and a college graduation!
Life happens! Thanks Warren and I'll get back to you with results, hope you feel better.
