    got the front together enough to take some pics. i didn't want to angle the fenders so i just bolted stuff up like stock just narrower! :hack: took 30 inches out of grill. grill center is now 20 inches wide. radiator fits no prob, width to fender insides is 37-3/4" i plan on bending a front tube behind radiator support then tying that into exocage at firewall :D
