The usual drill. Add rosette weld holes. Weld through primer.
Then the chin was mocked up and the rosettes were put in.
After adding a couple of fillet welds along the side and end of the support, and a lot of grinding, the chin went back of a test fit.
It all fits. The supports must have move a little on welding. I am hoping a little persuasion with a hammer will loosen things up. If not, cut and move. I really don't want to do that.
The panel is in. Both the inner fender and the horn baffle still needs the triangle piece to fill the gap between the two angles. And some of the bolt holes will need opened up. But it is getting there. I will move to the right panel next. Hopefully I can get it done tomorrow.
The swap meet was big. I was surprised how many vendors. Bought a fan. May go back tomorrow to see if any new stuff shows up on Saturday.
I decided I needed to get the chin to fit before I went on with the horn baffles. There are two support angles than attach to the radiator core support. These will have to be moved before the chin will fit.
The speed nut also needs to move 3/4". I decided the the best way to do it was to move the tab. A 3/4" section was cut out the the tab with the speed nut moved.
I managed to score a set of horn baffles off ebay. So, if I screw the first set up, I will have a second chance.
Tonight, the horn bracket on the left baffle was removed. It was then clamped in place to see what was going to have to happen for it to fit. Unlike the inner fender, it needs more than a slice and brake. The bottom flange will have to be broke until it is parallel to the centerline of the car and then it will have to be moved toward the outside of the car by about 5/8". This is going to be a bit trickier. Time to sleep on it.
The fenders and hood were hung on the car to see how things are going to fit together. On the whole, I probably didn't do a lot of work tonight, but what did get done sure feels good.
