    Got the other inner fender cut and mocked up, we are still going to add a taper or something in the front of the inner fender for clearance of the brackets that hold the radiator to the frame, for future removal of radiator without taking the front end apart, many other ideas and plans in our heads as we go.

    Tight fit in some areas.. looks like lots of room in others. (For Now!~)

    Can't wait to see you squeeze the exhaust in there. Headers I presume?

    It's coming along. Keep it up and you'll be done before you know it.

    They most certainly do but I think we should get it all in.

    One thing we was working on last week was those inner fenders, my brothers coupe has the same ones and they cross the frame blocking the upward path of the radiator brackets that hold it to the frame making it impossible to remove the radiator without tearing the front end apart or doing what my brother did over 16 years ago and mounting the radiator underneath the frame and removing it from the bottom if it needs to be pulled, this also makes it visible and I know my brother hates it so we fixed the problem on mine.

    So we cut out a clear path for the brackets to clear and used a piece of wood cut to the same width to test it.

    Boxed it in.

    Looks like it came that way.

    Thanks guys, we're just winging it, I am fortunate to have the help and expertise.

    A bracket was made for my power steering reservoir to take up that empty space on my passenger sidde.

    We did some shimming of the cab to work towards some door alignment issues.

    37 more times we will put it together and take it apart.

    Old body work is some scary unknown territory, doesn't look bad from what I see though!
