    Trying to get some body work completed before the weather turns

    front fenders:
    since both wheel gaps and the actual shape are completely different, decided to take the best bits from each side.

    drivers side Grind, CSM, Dynaglass, ez grip and lots of sanding.

    got the door gap pretty close (tight) and somewhat happy with the shape

    made some adjustments to the bumper and installed it. Installed my headlights. It had been so long ago since they were last in .

    The passenger side install went well, as I had some pictures. The drivers side, no pictures and I struggled. Ended up building a new drivers side one piece bracket.

    next up a bunch of body work on the hood and fenders

    tough to get stuff done while working, but got a little completed tonight

    cut off the excess with my air saw

    Sand with a block

    fine tune with 80 grit on one side of a filler spreader.

    AjZ - could be, but a J Watson body would be better. Either way you go it is a ton of work.

    spent some time clamping the front bumper and making adjustments to get it to look right....

    probably make a few more adjustments

    after a month of working on home projects good to be back on the REDO

    The lower portion of the driver door was sticking out too much when compared to the rocker panel.

    Cut the bottom of the door, attached blocks and screws to bring the lower portion of out door skin in.

    Fiberglass rage ultra and sand

    Now a nice smooth transition from the door to the rocker
