1936 Hudson front fenders sandwiched under body


Recommended Posts

Removed front fenders from a body-on project - had to aggressively pry the rear inner fender corners from between the body and body mount.  It appears that the fenders were originally installed first; then the body was set over top of a 5" portion of the rear inner fender which rests on top of the frame.  In re-assembly would there be any harm in cutting off the piece of sheet metal which was sandwiched in between?  I can't see where it provides much structural support, as it is bolted together in other places all around.  It is very difficult to properly lower the fender into position while also trying to shove the inner fender horizontally between the body and mount.  I don't want to risk damaging new bodywork and paint.
