Re: PO has me PO'd

Thanks Ben, but it was your great engineering that made my installation go so well

Hate to cover up with a bumper

Thanks Richard, keep going, anxious for your next post

Got the battery cables mounted the way I want them

Yes on the brush guard, seems to me it makes the front end come together, sorta tough look

Re: PO has me PO'd

This part needs some attention, looked at several videos from fitzees fabrication and will attempt his method, part is in reproduction, but don't want to pay

Re: PO has me PO'd

This is what the reproduction looks like, minus surface rust, but it's for the wrong side
Should make a good template though

Re: PO has me PO'd

Looks like your original might almost be salvageable. Will be getting ready to start on all that soon on mine. Got all the new parts that have been sitting here since 2016 i think

As the saying goes you can either weld good or weld alot, I tend to be the latter, so we'll see how this goes

Re: PO has me PO'd

Thanks Richard, curious to see if it really did fit behind and below the front bumper, 10 tool boxes and can't find the right combination to get at the top bumper bolts. 67,68 front grille isn't helping
Now, just to get grille guard mounted
Should look really sweet

2 deaths in the family isn't helping me keep up my morale last week, Older brother, and 1 on her side
Went on your thread, amazing progess......

Was on 301 the other day, Kent Island, area, saw a sign for signs, thought of you
