12-23-2009 06:36 PM A little update.....
With all the holiday goings on, and getting busy at work, the progress has slowed down alittle more than I would like. But I still have made some progress. I managed to get all the front sheet metal bolted together in stead of being held by spot welds. Also got the main radiator mounts bolted in.Fabricated a fan shroud and mounts for the electric fan.

11-14-2009 09:35 PM Now for that body line.....
To make the body line,I actually started by welding the upper part of the hood over the lower.When I pushed the lower in,it slid under the upper piece. Then with it welded together,I ran another piece of tape and ground the weld along it producing a nice raised line. Its a little hard to get a picture of,but you can see it if you look close in these pictures.

11-14-2009 09:14 PM Cutting the hood...........again....
To pull the rear edges of the hood in,I ended up having to cut the hood almost the entire length front to back.This gave me access to the inner brace which also needed cut and narrowed. I also ended up making 2 more vertical cuts at the rear. Then welded every thing back up
