  • new fenders on my truck....

    ok, i have to change the front fenders on my truck here soon, as in next saturday, for rust reasons and dent reasons. my question is this...

    on an older truck, is it a realistically possible to for the average guy working in his driveway to change both fenders and the hood in one day?

    cause if it is, i will be at next sunday's comp, if not, then i won't be there...

    Can be done I swapped out two front spindles and inner cv boots in an 1990 S10 Blazer in a day , and made it to an away soccer game the next day. It was'nt fun but depends on how committed you are Git-R-Done

        Yes it is possible, MAKE sure that you save all the body spacers... dont tighten everything down right off the bat so you can adjust it as needed, also make notes as to how many spacers came from where....
        Good Luck!

          well, the hood is going to get replaced tommorrow. yesterday morning i was going down the road and it popped up and open on me in the middle of driving down the road (ala Tommy Boy...)

          luckily, i found a used hood with 000 damage rating from the junkyand. and all that is is a matter of 2 bolts.
