11-07-2009 08:06 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 08:00 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 07:07 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 09:36 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.

10-31-2009 09:30 PM Making the chin.....
With the opening outline with rod,I basically just had to fill in the gaps.To do this at the bottom,I used the original filler piece that went between the front fenders on the truck.I cut it into 4 peices and welded them in the way I needed.They are actually upside down now.If you look close you can see the holes where the "ford" letters used to be,still have to weld them shut. I used the pieces because they already had a nice curve to them and they covered most of the bottom so I only had to make a couple of small corner filler peices.You also see the grille opening is now opened up too.
