Fender alignment

My car has fenders that seem misaligned. On both sides, where the fenders meet the doors. It seems that the fenders are slightly "poked out" and not fully inserted towards the engine bay. There is about 1/16" or so that they are out further than the door edges. Can I loosen the bolts that attach the fenders near the engine bay a have some wiggle room adjustment to move them inward? There is also a bolt on the bottoms of each fender I believe that mssy also have some wiggle room?

Yes, there is some adjustment built into the fender mounting points. I just went through this on my '92. On mine, I loosened the lower mounting points only and slid the fender downward, which pulled the middle of the fender inwards a little and that was enough adjustment for mine to line up. Everyone's is different, though. You'll have to mess with it until you get it where you want it.

That is usually caused by incorrect placement of a floor jack, it pushes up on the floor and makes the fenders bulge out.
