Fender alignment

I just added a monte carlo bar and replaced the old (slightly bowed) export brace with a premium export brace. In doing so I had to move the shock towers apart by about an additional 1/8"+ (the driver side had sagged inward somewhat). Now, no surprise, the gap between the hood and the driver side fender top is ~1/8" to big (~1/4" overall). So...

How do I adjust the fender to close the gap back to 1/8"? I assume that I have to loosen the six bolts along the top of the fender and the two bolts from fender to radiator support and push it into place. Is this correct? Any hints on what to do and how to do it would be appreciated.


The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.
