finder? you mean Fender? i hope.....

just because your stock fenders where in a spot doesnt mean the new set will be in the same spot... thats the point of having the mounting holes elongated, you have to align the fender to the door... go back outside and adjust them spend some time..

It usually takes a few tries to align them right. Once you do get them aligned, mark or make a mental note of where they sit. Hoods are a pita, too.
