Ok huge progress this morning!!
I even had a little helper this boy loves being out in the shop just as much as his daddy to bad he had to go in with mommy when I started welding.
I cut out all these brackets with my trusty 4.5" angle grinder and cutting wheel. I used a scrap sheet of 1/8" I have had laying around from other projects. I made these upper mount strut supports for the top of the radiator mount, and drilled some holes for a little affect.
Pulled it again to weld it all up. I had to make that notch in it for the headlight bucket to fit.
Then primed and painted it.
Then I got to making the grill body mount. The mounting point on the M38A1 grill is 2" inches farther back and about 1.5" inches up so I came up with this mount.
Im kind of frustrated cause my camera erased the side profile shot of it before I painted it but here is a shot of it with a fresh coat of paint.
Today was a pretty productive day just got to wait for all the paint to dry and install the oil pump prime the system and hopefully it will start. then I can install headlights and figure out turn signals
