Thanks man! It definitely came out better than I thought for how easy it was lol. Decided to leave the lens clear and I’m going to pick up another to do green and throw that on the bumper. Thinking of putting it under the main tube and cut an opening in the valence for it to get it as low as possible. And out of the way of the radiator.
Got the grill and headlights mounted to day. Not much fuss but the fitment in everything kinda blows. Gonna leave it for now till I have nothing left to work on I think. Or until it bugs me too much. Also need to cut some spacers for the headlights so I can tighten the lower mounts without having the lights point at the ground.
Next up for the front is the valence piece under the grill. Gotta unbolt it from the old header panel first though.
I also assembled the 9”. Cleaned up the inside and wire wheeled the face. Pulled out the old bearing races. Bolted up the third and axles.
I mocked up the brakes too but no pics. Gonna either take the axle to my FIL shop, or grab a welder from him to weld up the brackets. Hoping to have the brake lines and calipers mounted tomorrow or Thursday.
Also busted out the vintage LEGO to entertain me and the boy during quarantine. Not sure who’s more excited. Lol.
Had to work on some contingency plans in case my temporary lay off becomes permanent today so didn’t get much garage time. Most of it was spent cleaning and organizing but I did manage to get something done.
I cut out some tabs to mount the brake lines on the axle and I also cut down a bolt to weld it to the housing to mount the t-fitting.
Got the tabs and bolt welded yesterday. Decided to mount the bulkheads under the perches. It was close to hitting the u-bolts so instead of making new tabs, I welded them to a plate to weld to the axle.
And here’s the bolt
It was about that time I realized the banjos on my brake lines are wrong... of course they are... oh well I’m probably going to change the brakes on the front during the quarantine since I’m not happy with them anyway and can use them up there. Called TMR this morning and should be able to pick up new lines before my boys nap time.
