    As I'm better versed in B bodies, I humbly inquire as to whether or not the inner fenders on a '69 300 are removable (easily or otherwise) with the fenders still attached ?

    Yes they are.

    The FSM should have the procedure, but it's just basically take the wheel off and unbolt it. A couple layers of blue painters tape around the opening is a good idea to keep from scratching anything.

    They are simply screwed in. My question is, why would you want to?

    I took mine out when I converted to front disks, gave me more room to work. Putting them back in was FUN!!!

    They are pretty easy to remove and replace.

    I'm installing a FirmFeel stage II box and tubular upper control arms and life would be all Skittles and unicorn farts if the inner fenders were out of the way. :D

    Taking them off is easy. Putting them back on is more work. I used a Phillip's head screwdriver to line up one hole, while putting a screw into an adjacent hole. It worked but it took some time.

    Don't know. I've only done them on '70s, mine and a buddy's Hurst. Same experience both times.
