    What is the proper way to install the large “cup”? washers on the inner wheel well to fender? Not really shown well in my assembly manual. Does the lip on the washer go against the wheel well?
    Thanks.....

    The lip does not go against the inner fender it goes the other way.

    Not sure why, maybe ease of instalation on assy line, added strength, etc. Somebody may have a better guess.

    What washers are you talking about? I just installed my inner wheel houses with an AMK body bolt kit. It came with 4 bolts with large washers for the fender brace (need 6 though) and 4 loose washers, standard size. All the other hardware are just flanged bolts.

    Assy manual doesn't show it 20180228_171618-1.jpg very well calls the washer "reinforcement".
