I'm in the middle of building a little stroker motor for my '70 Z28. While the engine bay is empty I thought I'd patch a 3/4" hole near the top of the driver's side inner fender. I figured I'd have the repair done, shoot it with some fresh paint while it's out and then do the same removal/paint process on the passenger side. The paint is still the factory coat and, considering that, is not too bad but it's really never going to look good again no matter what I do to it. So far I have the LF wheel off and all the bolts for the L inner fender out. If it wasn't attached to the tray below the charcoal cannister it would be out already. The problem is that the length with that piece attached is not allowing me to snake the assembly out. It's loose and moves freely, but it's not really feeling close to coming out. So will I also need to remove the plate that the rearmost lower area bolts to? I'm hoping somebody has done this and can make sense of what I'm describing without photos. If not, I can shoot some photos tomorrow and post them. Also, there are 2 factory plastic straps that hold wiring to the fender, one towards the front and one to the rear. Is there a way to pop those up without destroying them? Almost all of that stuff is original on this car and I'd like to keep it that way as much as possible. While I'm at it, are there any tips for the other side? I haven't even looked at that yet. If I can't get these guys out I'll probably just scuff and shoot them where they are. Not optimal but probably do-able. Thanks!
