    got my grill attached to the FG front end and some little details squared away with the hinge. Also I turned the hood scoop around (see the before pic in my avatar).
    radiator install next.
    Have a Happy New Year everyone!

  7. Is the USPS mailman in the background delivering more parts? I dig it! 2 chrome air cleaners out the hood would look nice! IMO

    thanks guys, the hood's got a big "droop" in it so I need to put a scoop over it to hide it:) !
    I am going to take some hieght out of the scoop though.

    Not the best angle pic to show it but these classic teardrop ones look killer on 55 gassers
