He does. I still can't teach him the difference between a open end and a box end wrench though.
Started in on the inner rockers today.
Clamped one up in palce just to check. They will work fine.
Shot some weldable primer on the inside and will start welding them in tomorrow..
This pacakge also arrived today.
49 Plymouth front bumper.
I will be using 2 fronts on the Dodge like I did on the custom truck.
You can see that It already tucks in closer to the pan then the shiny rear one did.
With some pan surgery I will get it even closer.
Thanks for stopping by...

Some people will think you just keep getting lucky for no reason, but I think you plan ahead and make your own luck.
Good planning, Torchie.

Good planning, Torchie.
Thanks Mac.
I had the shiny rear bumper up in the rafters left over from the truck build. Where I didn't use it either.(I kind of feel sorry for it.)
So I thought that I would try it out first. I like it (Looking at it straight on) but don't dig the huge distance from the car body.
I know the front's is less arched and doesn't have the long wrap around ears so it was just a matter of coming up with one.
I suppose I will try to peddle the rear one but they seem to be pretty prevalent and don't bring near the money the fronts do. Although with this one being good driver quality chrome. Who knows.

Did some trimming of the rear filler panel. Tucked the bumper in to the body a bit more. No gap at the center of the bumper now.
I also started welding in the inner rockers. I won't bore you all with those pics.
