I just got my new inner fender and i started to piece together the front end. I thought the repro part would give me problems but its not its the orignal panels. The fender and the wheel well and the first then the fender to the car then i put in the radiator supportand the wasnt lining up at all with anything. I could see where it was supposed to go but i was like 1 or 2 centemiters away and after pushing and pulling i get one in the others are all messed up then i put on the front hood piece between the 2 fenders. not working cause of the radiator support. What dpes it take to line things up what order should i put them in. Fender first or wheel well or what? im kinda lost i thought since they were the original panels they would fit fine but no there are problems. Help

This is the order I use. Attach the radiator support 1st but needs to be loose not tight. 2nd, attach the inner fender to the fender loosely. 3rd attach the fender to the body and radiator support, you can adjust from that point on.

I completely redid the front clip on my 67 this past summer. I used a new GM radiator support and inner fenders, but repro outer fenders, header, and valence panel. Here is the order I put it together. Attached the radiator support loosely to the frame(as suggested above), attached the inner fenders loosely to the car, attached the outer fenders to the inner fenders, firewall and radiator support (take your time, it takes some finessing), attached the header panel to the two fenders, then attached the valence panel to the lower fender extensions. The only problem I had was installing the valence panel. It seemed like it wasn't wide enough, but using some c-clamps allowed me to clamp it together enough to get the bolts through. All in all, it went together beautifully without much affair and everything is square and perfect now. Just take your time.

Here are pictures:
