That's what I did with my restoration and there was no problem getting to it.
The fender beading tabs are a different story however, you just have to bend
them over the best way you can in those areas.  I was careful to write down
how each attachment was oriented before removal and that one was reversed from
all the others on both sides with the clip on the shroud and the bolt head on
the wheel well side.  I am pretty sure that my left fender had never been
removed since birth, the right one had been removed after the first owner had
a little meeting with a snow bank (if they only knew!!).

Take care,
