inner fenders

I have a 72 el camino and im trying to install my inner fenders. I took one fender off and put the fender on like that and I left the other fender on and tucked it up in the fender. Both ways of doing it the fender holes and the inner fender holes dont match up and all parts are new. Is this typical and I need to just drill bigger holes or new holes, or could something be damaged from before on the frame or something?
Im just frustrated becuase its not as easy as I thought it would be and now its not going together.

Are you positive that you have the correct inner fenders from a Chevelle! Which bolts aren't matching up? Around the wheel well? The rad cradle? or the firewall? Are they off by inches or just a half a hole? Pictures would be nice, do you have a camera?

Plastic or steel inner fenders?

I have a camera but I would have no where near enough light. The parts are the correct parts. I can get almost all the wheel well, but then they dont match up on the rad support. Then I bolt up the rad support first, and then the holes are off on the wheel well. The fender I took off and put the molding in that way, all the holes line up on the fender, but they wont line up with the top of the fender holes.
The holes are off by about a whole hole. My only guess is to make some new holes.
