Default installed new fender and it doesnt line up with my door???

ok guys, i replaced my 2000 gsr fender with oem 1999 integra fender and it doesnt lined up with my door. Did i install it wrong. The fender sticks out a little bit. We didnt remove front bumper just sideskirt. Please hel me align,
the new fender is oem clean no dents so it should be perfect fit like my old one.

did you make sure you made those fine adjustments while you were installing it? or did you just slap the bitch on there?

well i don't do body work... but with anything that you build/install you don't tighten anything so you can correct the alignment and placement of things. i'm pretty sure it would be the same when you're installing anything that requires precision fitment. so loosen up those bolts and get that fender lined up then tighten everything down.

can anybody else back up what i just said? like i said, i don't do bodywork. so if i'm incorrect, let me know the correct way as well.

You cant just put a body part on and expect it to be perfectly flush without adjusting it.

Sounds about right. I did the exact same thing installing a fender on my uncle's acura vigor.

i installed a fender on my LS and you gotta keep all the bolts loose and expletive with it until it's right. mine looks perfect, it's really impossible to tell that it's ever been messed with.

How did the paint job turn out on your fender?
