Alright guys, I just bought a new fender to replace the one that the stupid deer totally wrecked. Umm..I'm curious on how hard it is to bend body mounts for a fender just a bit. I know the mounts are bent back a bit.

Also, who can I get all the little clips and screws that hold all the plastic to the bumper and fenders? I also need a little plate that goes between the front bumper and fender, holding them together. It was just hanging there when we had it on a lift, so I just pulled it down.

The fender mounts are easy to bend. Just be carefull because the corner of the header panel is bolted to it as well up in the front. I had to bend mine a bit and everything lined back up just fine. I just used my 2lb. hammer and a couple of raps later it was good to go.

I would just go to Autozone for the plastic body screw/clips.

thanks for the reply man, what about that metal plate that bolts the bumper to the fender? I checked the passenger side and it's in good condition, the driver side one (pictured above) has a broken mount and all that.

Known anywhere or anybody I can get one from? I'd rather do it completely right the first time.

If you have a dremel tool, you could grind off what is left of the bolt so you have a flat surface, smack the middle of where the bolt used to be w/ a punch, and drill a hole in it, and just use a regular nut and bolt???

jk89cat: Thanks for the part number. I didn't know if they sold one or not.

FordMan77: I have a dremel around here somewhere, not sure where my cut off wheels are either. If I can find it I'll go with you idea, if not I'll just go by one instead of screwing around for it.

i have the same problem with my fender. i had a minor accident and it pushed the fender so now there is a gap between the hood an the fender. you think if i just bent the fender mount back to shape that i could get rid of the gap? its not that big of a gap but its noticeable
