Default Fender and front clip removal?

I need to remove my passengers side fender and front clip to paint them white to match the rest of the car. How do they come off? I have some bolts out, but I don't think all of them.

I got them. I just had to look for some of the bolts. What can I use to fix a crack in the fender? And is the white on the bonneville just White, or is it a different white?

Unfortunately, not only is the white out Bonnie'* use not a simple white, but several shades of white have been used over the years. If you find a donor car, you need to find the paint codes to make sure they match up.

give me an hour and a half and I will have a writeup on removing it. I have done it several times aand it is easier to remove the whole thing as one and then remove the fenders.

I already got the fender and clip off. It was fairly easy. Here are some pics. No, I don't know why the underhood is pink, I think it is rustproofing.

Crack in the fender. Can it be fixed?


Here a pic of the pieces removed. The pink sucks.

That was painted pink by someone. The car would have been sprayed one color by the factory originally and in your case..it would have been white. Do you know of major damage in your car'* history. I think that some major work was done.

If you know markviiisvt4 here on the forum, it was his car. They hit a deer in it but it only damaged the fender, hood, and front clip, no other damage, and while he had the engine out doing some work, he painted it pink because his girlfriend wanted the car pink.
