nice...doest look like you have too much work to do...should be fun!

Okay folks, thank you for the kind words. I got the front end together so we can see how things are fitting. I got the front end clip on and found that the passenger hood hinge is pushed back. This is expected since the tub is very flexible in this area it tends to bend and damage the cowl cover. I used a come along to pull the hood hinge mount level. I used a degree finder to measure the angle and gradually move the mount level.

I bought the red grill for really cheap but it does need some work. If you look closely you can see the few dents it does have it.

I need to fully strip the front of the grill to remove the various rock chips it has...arg

Awesome. I love these rebuilds.

jermeyg 10-16-2010 08:56 PM

Okay now on to the back. I used a level to see how far off it was. It wasn't too bad. I used the same tools and before and got decent results. The other side is going to be tough... There isn't as much room since the hinge mounts are back there.

Nice. I'm hoping to learn a thing or two in your thread.

jermeyg 10-16-2010 09:15 PM

Here is that corner and stripping the grill still have more to go on it. Also got the doors on and fixed the gaps. Don't have the driver door on any more. I took it off and started sanding the doors. Lots of tedious work...
