    Been awhile since I posted. I have got several things done. Front sheet metal getting aligned, rebuilt steering column, rebuilt ac/heater box, narrowed gas tank to fit for mini tub and few other things.

    Front sheet metal getting aligned up. By the way I hate aftermarket sheet metal.

    Little more work. Urethane nose is giving me issues with the mounting brackets attached to it aligning up to the brackets running off the core support .

    Nice work, and I noticed that in the beginning you mentioned now nice the AMD sheet metal was, now not so much when you got to the front HAA HA , car looks great, lots of items going on at once , nice job!!

    AMD seems to fit better than others that I had purchased. The rear of the car wasn't bad at all . The front went on good just trying to get good body lines. That urethane nose man is a whole nother story. PIA!!

    That does seem a little further off then normal, have you determined that the nose piece is not tweaked? And looking at the center bar issues , you may have some issues on the metal side as well. I guess you are going to have to take a level to all of the faces and see where the issue lays

    I'd say "money pit" was right. Amazing work on that machine. Keep us posted!
