  16. How did you decide whether to adjust the gap on the fender or the hood? I noticed you did it different on each side.

    The gap on the right was almost 1/2" near the cowl so I moved the fender edge in. The gaps get tighter near the front so I narrowed the hood. I'm about to do the same to the front of the right.

    Gaps look nice!
    This job is waiting for me at some point,but i guess i'll pass the fender welding to the body.
    Just to make maintenance easier,if i have to remove the fenders/merc surround combo for some reason.

  21. All that work you're putting into the gaps will pay off, it's looking great.
