    Here it is almost in it's finished state, still have to mount the hood, it's all ready to go, cut off the old hood and skined. Have to find some used 1st Gen fender and skin them, but other than that, it's about done.

    Many and HUGE THANKS to Matt Fenmore, AZ-K5 /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif for all his skills and help today, he did all of the tube bending and coping for me today, all I did was hold the stupid end /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif :whistling of the tube and welded /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif it once he bent and coped /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif the tube.

    Matt was the only reason I got this far today, without him, and his help, this would still be sitting in the garage at home. Matt I owe you one, and really appreciate it!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    Also a huge thanks to Nick AKA, Mosesburb for his help with my wiring harness for the front lights, he is the man when it comes to wiring GM stuff.

    Rob, Nice job. When you have better lighting take some more pictures of the details. I'll bet the A/C works good.

    looks good Rob. Did you let Matt use that same conduit stuff he normally does? /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif It bends kinda easy so watch it around those rocks. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Can't wait to see it in person. Matt does some pretty good work sometimes. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif That whole tubing and bending thing is pretty easy for him.

    If you need anymore help let me know. I am back in town so I can come by whenever.

    I just can't wait till you get to rub it. Should make a solid "thud" sound. It has me thinkin' about mine.

    Glad I could help, wish I could go.

    Everyone,

    Thanks, for all the great complements, it is starting to grow on me some. Spent a lot of time finishing off the wiring today, along with some bonding time. I brought the hood home today.

    I'm pretty stoked. It should make for some pretty fun wheeling. It's totally diffrent when driving, no rattles, no clanks.

    Once again, I really appreciate everyones help with this.

    Rob
