    After a few weeks of fighting..FINALLY got the custom Alum RADIATOR in place.
    More than ever I understand why in the OLDAZE they raised front wheel placement and sectioned the hood…History lesson…

    Ok more on bumper guard parking lights…carefully drill and tap …marking attach points..I did 10/24..stay with #10 or #12…24.

    Moving along on Parking Light bumper guards…now I belt sanded them a bit…BUT don’t over do it with heavy grit (#36)..REMEMBER you gotta hand sand the scratchs out like paint.

    Another wing vent update..took that kink out of the top…added a hold in place bracket on the form to keep it from kicking out.

     

    OK….little carefully applied heat and pull it down on your pattern…has a tendency to want to spring up a bit.when cooling.
    Your choice of methods…cut..splice. .weld..rechrome and remember vent lock will need to be removed..or my method which requires polishing.
