Front end assembly!! Please Help!!!
Ok so what is the best way to re-install your hood and fenders (75CJ5).:brickwall:brickwall I am totally frustrated and there has to be a better way. What's is your way?

Grill 1st, loose. Then hood, loose. Get it centered and gaps right. Snug down slightly. Then fenders to grill, top and bottom screws. Align rear to tub.

There may be a better way, but this is my recommendation. It take a while to get right. Also a send set of hands and eye help a lot.

If I put to bolts in the rear of the fenders it is hell trying to get the front fenders to line up with the grill.

Do the fender to grill 1st. My hardest part was getting the hod to center. but the issue on mine is with the aftermarket fenders I need to drill new holes in mine.
you will most likely need a second pair of hands.

Don't tighten any bolts until all of them have been started.

The pitfalls of aftermarket parts rears its ugly head.
