We are going to be changing the front nose and getting rid of the large spoiler





We will also modify the rear bumper to get a better fit and paint body color.

This is the first test fit of the customer supplied Stangaholics front apron. I had to do a lot of fiberglass grinding to clear the electric fan. It still needs to go down on the right side and up on the drivers side.

Car still looks great Rusty ... can't say I love that valence though but to each their own.

I've also never understood "pusher" fans and their impeding of air flow but getting a real efan in an early car has challenges.

Look forward to the finished product.

To get the front end to line up better Brian had to adjust the fenders.









I had to add a little filler to match the fenders



Epoxy primed

Brian cut the ends off the bumper and lined up the center



Since the bumper was narrow we had an old bumper that he cut out a section and welded to the back



Reshaping the end



Now he can screw it together to test fit



After a lot of welding and grinding





Epoxy primed. Next week I will do a little bodywork

Paul picked up the car Saturday and fit the new grille when he got home. He is still waiting for the black surround.
