The panel that your headlights mount too.
If you need to adjust your door jamb, move the door first. Fenders suck cause there are a ton of bolts.

well the tire bent it a little under the back of the flare by the door, it pushed it up and out maybe 1/8th of a inch or so, so i would rather try to move the fender its not really noticable but the body lines were perfect before and now the fender sits up a bit, the top seam by the hood is unchanged it is just from the mirror down.

You've bent the sheet metal, there is no going back. you'll move your fender and fix your door gap, then your hood gap will be off.
Unless you bend it back, just leave it as is or buy a new fender.
