New but old

Hey Everyone,

Been a memeber for almost a year now but I have not been on in awhile. I have a dumb question maybe, I have a 1969 impala I just installed new fenders on but they do not sit right also after browsing pics on line there is some type of rubber that seperates the fender and the bumper. my question is, is that the bumper filler cause if it is I boutht a pair off eklers but I do not know how to install them. I would take it to a shop but money is not time and my pockets are already wore thin from the fenders. If someone could offer some advice and tell why the fenders sit high and far from the bumper I would greatly appreciate it. THANKS!

I cant offer any advice on your 69 fenders but others on here probably can. Welcome June.

Well, let me first ask if these fenders were repros or originals . My guess would be repros. If this is the case must of these repro manufacturers try to make a part that they advertise will fit multiple years when in fact that part was specifically made for 1 year. If this is not an original, I would say you would have to make necessary adjustments to make it fit properly. Not to say that even with original body parts you still had to use washers in various places to even out your gaps.
