Leo, it looks close to the same on each side.
Wendell, all kinds of "notions" going around in my head. What you think about a scene with the CHIPMUNKS
Oh, the back splash bars look grey in the picture but they are actually powdered coated a cream color. I was unsure about them and will wait a while to judge it. If anything I will go back and paint them body color.... I think!
John, when I purchased the panel the front end had been totally taken off. I can't say for sure about the hood but I believe it had been moved to. I did scribe around them but in the end it wasn't deep enough. I learned here, after the fact, to drill and put in a little roll pin!
I might add that yes, as it sits now, the front of the hood barely touches the top grille bar but once the back goes down I think it'll be alright. In all truth, the front of the hood, from side to side, is pretty dang good where it fits down in the fenders. I have left the latch panel off for now untill get t he hood set.
I am going back and re-read the tips on it and I have some topics that I printed out some time ago knowing dang well I'd need them. So, for the next day or two, Leo and I
are going to think about it and then proceed very carefully.
Thanks for your comments guys... and for your help and inspiration. I'd probably give up on this one a long time ago but didn't want you guys calling me a quiter
