Finally got off my @$$ and got some promised pictures.
Here's the after pic. it's not perfect but it's miles closer than before.
The drivers side was closer but still about a 1/4 inch out. here's the outcome
here's my shellacked headliner. it came out decent.
cleaned up the floors and spray bombed them. don't mind the pits.....
and the bumper. i still have to shorten it but that comes with motivation.
It's from the front of an 82 f100 that i scrapped a while back. i swapped the cut off frame horns and cut down a set of stock bumper brackets and welded them on. it turns out the spacing was just about spot on. It's going to be painted black at a later date and yes, i am going to get real bumper bolts later.
This should have me caught up on pictures for now. peace.
