Default How to remove front fender on 1972 2.8 XJ6

I need some help please. I am restoring a 1972 2.8 XJ6. For the life of me I can not get the front fender off. This car was built in Blackheath in South Africa. Some help with pictures of where the hidden screws are will be much appreciated.

Caveat. I never tried to do this.


1. If the old wing is to be discarded, do as the pro's do, cut it away to reveal and make access to the screws easy.


2. Check out fellow lister David Boger's web site. I don't have a link. He dissected a similar car with copious pictures.


3. Think it out. The screws along the top of the bay are easy. There is a tin behind the front wheel. I suspect that removing it will find one or more screws attaching the wing to the "B" pillar. Now, to the front. If the head lamp bucket is out, it may reveal fastener ends there. If the radiator and support is out, it may reveal screws at abut the hood/bonnet hinge.


4. When my car suffered it's driver door hyper extension, we found two screws on the cabin side of the "B" pillar. They secured tin, I think, but might have also contributed to the wing to post joining. My racheting "ring' wrenches made these easy!!
