I got the front cut off today.



Got the new front up and started fitting it.



Almost their, the hood already lines up better than it ever has.

Looks good! I fixed you picture links. Just use the direct links from photobucket and code them with the img tags

Thanks guys it was not as bad as I thought it would be to do just time and a lot of parts on and off. Still need to clean up the welds again and get any spots that have been missed. Now I wondering if I should re-clock the Inspection opening above the steering box.

That inspection plate change was a mid year 1964 change. Now is definitely the time to change it if you think it'll bother you.

I'm not that much of a purists, so I'd let it ride and let the spare tire hide it as is, lol. Plus, I don't really like welding too much.

But, if you're already going through the big job of a front clip replacement, you obviously aren't scared of a little extra welding, may as well go all in!

What disc brakes did you go with? Looks like it's about time for some driving.

Cool....I used the same set on Gordon's car but haven't finished the rest of the car so no clue how well they work. Do you want to sell the drum drop spindles? I may have someone interested

I put the carriers on the new set . I'd like a set of carriers to put on my stock spindle set. So no they don't.
