I am assembling the front on my 3600 too. Without holes in your floor, and no nuts in your fenders, I think setting the gap on the bottom of your inner fenders to your frame would get you close. The gap on my inner fenders to the frame is about 3/8” inch. That assuming your inner fenders are not bent up.

Since that is the case, line up your hood, line up your fender, then line up your inner fender and make your preferred attachment. It might take assembly and disassembly a few or more times, but you'll be better off in the end.

Yes, that's exactly what I've got in mind.

There is a lot of room for play in the inner fender which has no real bearing in positioning the front clip. I do not even put any bolts in those hole until the front clip is 100% lined up.
I recommend that you make sure the front clip is 100% lined up, then push the frange of the inner fender against the toeboard and drill through the flange and the toeboard at the same time and put one nut and bolt on and tighten it up, and then drill the other two holes and bolt them up.
