I wish I was close enough to really need the answer to this question but as I like this site so much I thought I would ask it anyway. And I didn't see the answer in my archive searches.
Is it better to install the inner fenders and then the outer or should you attach the inner to the outer and install them together?

I'm sure you will find varying opinions on this, but I just installed my fenders a few weeks ago, and put the inner fender on and had quite a time getting the outer fender to get under the lip on the wheel well.
I would think that as hard as it was, it was a lot easier to not try to muscle both in place at the same time.
Just food for thought. Sean

I have found it MUCH, much easier to install the apron to the fender first and then put it all on.

I put them on separately and it was difficult to get the fender lip hooked under the inner fender. Later, I read in the chassis manual that it is recommended to attach the two first and install as a unit. I took them off as a unit because I wasn't sure what I was doing and it was easy.

I did the AC unit install and removed the fender. I agree with the idea of joining the two before you bolt to the rest of the car. It was a bitch getting the inner well to match the lip of the fender with the fender bolted in.
