    Default Front fender?

    Where the front fender bolts to the A frame, there is a plate at the top that the bolt goes through. My question is mine has body filler around this plate. This is a GM G body. What is the purpose of it?

    That looks like the sealer the factory used to seal the heater box. They weren't to careful to make it look nice. Probably to seal it from water getting into the engine bay and rust forming.

    Thanks. It just seems odd to me that sealer would be needed on the outside of the car between the door and fender. The reason for my question, I need to remove the lower part to make the new fender fit. I'll have to try to reseal after I get the fender installed. Hope to get pictures of the top bracket later today.

    Sorry no pictures. What I thought was a problem wasn't. Just a problem with after market fenders. I'll keep working on it until I get it figured out.
