11-07-2009 07:12 PM Making the insert....
To make the insert,I used 1/2" flat stock and ran it around the inner lip of the shell. I made a center vertical piece by welding 2 pieces of the 1/2" flat stock into a "v" shape.

11-07-2009 07:06 PM Splitting the hood.....
Ended up having to separate the hood from the lower grille shell sooner than I had planned.Needed to get access to weld in the grille insert mounts,(which I still have not made.)

11-07-2009 07:00 PM Headlights...
It seems the further I get with the 48,the more individual projects overlap each other.Case in point,Im working on the grille and grille shell,but figured I had better get the headlight buckets mounted,so I can get an idea of what the entire front is going to look like before I build the grille insert.So,got the buckets tack welded to there perspective mounts.I ended up mounting them a little lower than I originally planned,so I will be making some clearance for the shocks when I finish the mounts.

11-01-2009 06:07 PM Took it easy.....
Decided to take it easy today.Did manage to roll the 48 out in the sunshine,and sweep out the shop.Also made the mounts for the lower grill shell,and did manage to get some more welding and grinding done on the hood.

10-31-2009 08:36 PM Finishing the edge....
With the basic shell built,I decided to add a 1/4" peice of flat stock around the opening just inside of the round rod edge.This gives it a finished look and will give a place to hide the edge of the grille insert behind.
