    No way. I have wanted these forever, and they are staying. Going on this week when my new headers get here.

    I got the front rails refabbed. Now all I have to do tomorow is go to Henry Steel and get some sheetmetal and refab the strut towers and clean the holes up in the engine bay, but other than test fitting the K-member today, I feel like I got a great deal accomplished.

    Heres the progress pics... Enjoy!

    Thanks. It was no where near as bad as your cougar but I spent alot of time in your thread around the strut tower rebuild of yours. You helped me alot and didnt even have to weld anything... on my car that is.

    On vacation now... Now I can get some REAL work done. I got all the rinkydink stuff done, cleaned all my front end parts, painted my chassis parts, calpiers got a good coat too. I cleaned up my 11" spindles also. Hopefully this week I can get alot more done.. I hope to have the nose 3/4 the way back together, atleast have the k-member back under it.
