To be fair they ( he ) did say they would require some work to get to fit properly.
Not quite there yet. I need to work on the front surround a bit more. The top looks good and its all lined but front isnt as crisp as it needs to be.
Fit looks really good. Nice work.
That final fit looks pretty good in the picture. Good work.
Congratulations on making that nose fit your car, it looks good. I bought the same one and got blasted on this website for simply asking for help. My body guy wanted 8 hours labor to fit it. No amount of adjusting the front sheet metal would make up for the poor fit. I cut and re-glassed the top and added at least 1/4” filler on the bottom.
I would attend to the front header panel and trim where the grill goes fitting before I tried to square the hood to the header
The nose is just roughed in right now for height. The front end has to come off in a few weeks to pull the engine out to correct a top end over oiling issue at high RPM. After that I'll get the front end back together and get everything aligned the way it needs to be. Painting is set for mid march so I have plenty of time to square it all up and do finish body work on the gaps and such.
Ive spent the last week on the passenger door which was a disaster. This a big old pile of aftermarket ill fitting Chinese parts on a 1979 Camaro so if I come out with a "straight enough" 10 foot paint job by the time I'm done I'll be happy.
Lots of work in that nose. Still need to snug it down a bit more.
