09-06-2009 08:03 PM Frame Horns
I needed to finish out the end of the frame rails.Being that Im using a 70 chevy truck frame,it did not have "suitable" frame horns.I ended up building some from scratch to give the front end a "finished" look.

With the brace modified,I reinstalled the hood center,makeing sure the alignment was the way I wanted it.Then I started tacking it together.I started mocking up the nose piece too.

I swapped the hinges/springs side to side and also raised the mount point up on the fire wall.This lets the hood open further and makes room for the m/c assembly on the drivers side.with the hood center removed,I realized that the inner brace would need modified too.So,I cut it apart and rewelded it,so that the hood sides actually were moved in almost 2 " with out pressure on them.The picture shows the difference in the cut side(drivers) and the stock one.The cut side has much more inward angle.

In part 4 I mentioned cutting the center section loose,well I got to that today.I drilled the 6 spot welds attaching the inner brace,and off it came.With it off,I realized I needed to modifiy the actual inner brace.
