So here are the things that we need to replace
Front end: fenders, grille, hood and cowl cover
windshield frame
Fix both ends of the tub for some corner guards

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.

Using a hammer dolly set and stud gun

There we go

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

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.

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...
