Ok, first off, take back everything bad you've said about big Healeys.
Want me to measure some of the chicken coop raccoon pooh fenders to see of
one's a better fit for ya?

While assembling the 67 front end for fit before body work, I find the
right fender way short of the bonnet lip. It was not hit in that spot.
So all the adjusting in the world will not make ends meet.
So I measured each fender to find the right side 3/8" SHORTER than the
bonnet and left fender.
I know big Healey fenders are not even close if you lay them back to
back but I thought they got it a little closer on the Sprites.
The bonnet measures 48-5/8" at the fender lip on each side, as does the
lip of the left fender. So how come the right fender measures 48-1/8" ?
Tomorrow I take a BFH to the fender or maybe see what the port-o-power
At least I have the underside and engine bay painted. The doors fit
perfect, but the front end looks like a nightmare.
