10-26-2008 10:59 AM Better Mockup

I cut off all the messed up metal strips and pieces as I had to match the outside half of the fender. I made up a 20 ga. panel exactly opposite and tacked it in place.

This gives a much better beginning for front end mockup.

10-18-2008 03:22 PM Tacks Finished
Pic 1: Panel tacked in place. A little twisting and the gap closed right up as the panel came into "arrangement".

Pic 2: This is a "before" shot.

Pic 3: This is an "after" shot. I think the front end will look alot better with the Ford headlights.
