or aprons, lol

last weekend doing my booster i had taken er for a test and up goes the hood, (and it could have been a badder thing as i was a tad drinky) heh heh heh

yeah i had to change em both anyways but i was holding back, needless to say - i kinda forced to do em or park it,.

these are where i left off today, i wasnt gonna do the entire front end (rad support, etc, etc) but since i have spares and there is nada left on the old shitz to hold bolts - well, - the project got a bit bigger

o ya , popped a new 'relief' hole in my rad in the process today (fuckity fuck fuck :eek: )

was nice to have no rain yesterday.

I was going to do the shocks and other things now while is nice and open but with the reports of big rain coming i think its best to get fenders and a hood back on here

time to pull rad support and inner apron bracket off the 71 and get moving on this fast heh heh

here's where i left it yesterday

Pho Boi did it pizz down yesterday !

i muscled thru it and im up to this, just gotta place wiring, batts, finish mount grill, rad and then hood

since alot of the donor parts are off multiple trucks its not like i could mark everything so i'll see how my eye balling worked out when it comes time to close the hood, lol

everything is tad loose for that readjustment still heh heh

heh heh

when re and re'ing front clip parts one of the rad support holes thru frame was gone gone gone and i mean no more frame even close to the rubber grommets lol

no plate or welder on hand at that time but ill do it up right when i cab swap later on

in the mean time, i hit kyles place and got er stronger than ever probably with an underside weld with all parts still in place

good thing or it would have been hell yesterday if not with 'issues' had we not done it up
