W108 front fender removal

I've removed the fasteners from the front, and along the top of the fender, and the two screws on the bottom near the rocker panel, as well as the hex head screw near the A pillar above the door hinge. Is there a fastener I'm forgetting in the A pillar area before I can remove the fender?

I guess there should be TWO 10mm hex bolts inside the fender too.. Along the A-pillar.
You might need to remove a plastic or steel protective plate inside the fender to find the bolts. I guess it's the same on this as on the W114/115..
The protective plate is fastened with 3 8mm bolts. (Usually)
