Trying to install repo 26/27 radiator apron, the holes do not line up with the studs! The holes need to be moved back 3/8" to 1/2" on the pre-bent tabs. The fenders are repo and the flanges are tight to the front of the frame now. I am sure someone has run it to this, any suggestions on how to fix?
These are the parts we need to work with at this time and have to make fit. Yes I am sure that original part would be best but don't have them.

Mark, with repro parts you just have to do what works on your car. The 26-7 aprons I have seen come from varied sources. Some have the tabs on the side to sandwich between the frame and fender brackets, some come with no holes drilled for the radiator studs, none of them have the correct deep curve across the panel like the originals, so feel free to do what you have to.
