AC "Suitcase removal"

Guys - do I need to take the front fender off to remove the ac "suitcase"? I'm going to put an AC delete cover on it.

I have a '68 with factory air.

Yes you do if you want it to come off in one piece. Maybe able to get it off if you can somehow pull out the inner wheelwell without taking the fender off.

Thanks Mark. If you do have experience pulling off the fender, do you have any tips? I've just heard - "take pictures, note where the shims are, Keep bolts organized/labeled, etc... regular stuff. Anything else? Thanks

Tape up your door and fender edge areas. The paint chips really easy (ask me him I know..... lol)

I removed the a/c from this one while the engine was out. Turned out the header hit the fiberglass heater core cover. It would have been easy to trim/patch the cover before it was installed. A bit of a pain later.
