I recently posted a question regarding the replacement of the front right inner fender (battery apron). Fortunately, everything seemed to go well with that replacement. Now I decided that it would be best to replace the right rear inner fender. Is this replaced the same way? Any pointers on doing this? I also noticed the the right hand shock tower is approximately 1/4 inch out of alignment. I know the car was hit in the right side before I bought it. The export braces fot fine, so I would assume it is off by only a fraction. When I replace the RR inner fender, should I get a porto-power on the shock tower and then weld the new piece in? I just rebuilt the front end and everything seemed to go smooth with that job. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again.

You may need some good measurements and or reference measurements if you need to adjust the shock tower . Make sure you support the car with jackstands or wood blocks before you cut it apart and weld the new one in . The rear inner fender panel is a "support" piece between the shock tower and the firewall . Make sure the car is level and supported before cutting , watch for movement when the welds seperate . With patience and care you should be fine .
