    I bought a couple of front fenders for my '07 Dodge 2500 months and months ago ... finally got them painted weeks ago, and finally had some time to start the replacement process. So, anybody here have any tricks and tips for body panel alignment?

    I have nice even gaps everywhere except between the fender and door right at the body line indent in the lower section. This is right at the mount bolt behind the door that can slide fore and aft. I believe I have the bolt slid all the way forward (but will need to double check that). What next? Shims between that bolt and panel?
