    55' Chevy front end.. body to frame attachment

    I bought a 55' Chevy recently....
    The front fenders bolt to the cowl (Body) at the top and bottom (Rear) of each fender. My question is..where does the fenders bolt to the frame at the front?
    I bought this car w/o a radiator support (Or drive-train), I know ithe support connects to both fenders at the top but will the bottom of the radiator support bolt to the frame?
    At this time, I can push the front side of the fenders inward and outward with the hood open... If the radiator support doesn't bolt to the frame, what holds the nose to the frame?

    Also: Anyone have a complete (V8) radiator support?

    There are a bunch of parts here.

    The inner fenders, front filler panel, center filler bracket, upper and lower radiator support, the two baffel assemblies (each side of radiator) work to hang the front fender.
    There is also a bracket on each side that attaches the inner fender to the firewall.
