I cleaned up the hitch I got from Squazz, (sanding, grinding, .. etc), primed it with Eastwood primer, cut & drilled new 1/4x1.5x2" steel "washers". Iíll give it a coat of SG Black after the recommended drying time.
I removed the grill, header panel & bumper to start the preparation for the '95 to '96 grill/ bumper/ fog light upgrade. PO had wired fog lights off of the low beam head lights. I found the OE fog light harness beside the horn harness so Iíll re-configure to OE standards w/ a hopefully good used switch.
I knew it had been hit on the passenger side and I was expecting the worst. It was awesome to see it is as clean as it is with the only metal damage being the RH bumper bracket. Looks like I should be able to pull it back out.
The last pic is of the remainder of the brush guard I cut off. The PO had welded it to the radiator support! Rather than grinding the remainder off Iím going to just replace the rad support with a KOR support.
