easy, just take your time, get all the bolts on the top first, disconnect all lights and pull wires out, then check for 2 bolts on each side then there will be bolts on the underside (near side markers). should take about 20-30min. They are very simple just pay attention and don't start pulling if it doesn't move easily. When all bolts are out, it will come straight out WITH EASE!!!

I hope they have some that weren't in front end accidents. I'd like to find a niner grille too. But that's not a big deal at the moment

IF you can't find a header panel and you truly need one, let me know they are like 31-35 here and I have plenty to pick from that have no front end damage.


No more niner grilles I have pulled all of those.

Thursday!

Called the shop today, I'll be taking my 96 in sometime early next week.
I get paid Thursday, and should be getting my 2k against ZJ #1 sometime this week as well, which means my paycheck and some cash from that are going to my "new" one.

All good, get your Z first, the grille is not going anywhere, just sitting in the garage.

You should be pulling the carpet out of your ZJ and monstalining the inside, mr. flood.

Just ordered my plenum pan from Brain on thespeedfreaks.net. 65 bucks shipped with bolts. Paid for it last night and already have a shipping number as of 6:45 am today. Fast! Now I just need to get some really good gaskets, distributor cap, 703 rebuild kit, 180* thermostat, and fit the leaky seal above the gas tank. Can't think of anything else right now but I'm sure there's more.

I should probably replace the cps and oil sender while I have it apart as well... geesh
