The SSR comes with a remote operated tonneau cover lift and tailgate release. The control unit for all that is factory located back up under the left rear fender well. In order to get the new sheetmetal and fender in place, we had to move that control unit and built a new mount for it.

Another thing about the Chevy SSR is that it's not square. The body/bed narrows, going back from the cab to the tailgate (unlike the original '53 3100 which was essentially a rectangular box). This means the stock fenders will need to be sectioned so that their outer edges will line-up parallel with the front fenders. In other words, the front portion of the fender need to be narrower than the rear portion.
