To wit: you are connecting the sides of the car together. So, a minor hit on one fender can really cause serious damage to the rest of the car. Opinions?
the way of structural support to the car. If
you lightly damage a front fender there should not be any strut tower deformation on the side that was hit. If you band up a fender enough to where
it deforms the strut tower then yes some of those forces will be transmitted to the other side through the strut brace. However, yuo were already into major collision damage at that point anyway.
I would not worry about. I have a strong-strut and
all is just dandy. Steve H.
