Re: 66 DiBella (means of the beautiful)

Front end is one piece. I removed the upper fender bolts and welded the up end cowl panels to the fenders. Now the fenders bolt up with the upper panels and the lower fender bolts. So really I just make the fender bigger and bolted up different. Then I welded the core support to the fenders and front valence. So it will be super strong. I will remove the entire front end with the 2 front body mounts and the three fender bolts on each side. Only down side to this is you are married to it. So if the truck were ever hit in the front you would be screwed it would ruin tons of hours of work. Good thing I am not driving the truck everyday.

Looking good. With the rest of the shaving are you keeping the door handles or shaving those?

Re: 66 DiBella (means of the beautiful)

Can someone on the board tell me how to put the link to my build on my account so that when I post it is on the bottom of my posts as a link. Any help would be great. Thanks Eric

Click on "User CP" in the blue banner towards the top of the page, then in the Settings and Options section (3rd box down all the way to the left) click on "Edit Signature". From there you can either copy and paste the hyperlink to your thread. I included an example in my signature below that goes to the first page of your build, but you can choose any page you want. Just copy the appropriate hyperlink.

Re: 66 DiBella (means of the beautiful)

Thank you ajgriffin I will do that right now. I am going to put 20 in the rear because of the 18 inch fronts. I want it to look right and I was worried the 22 would be too big
