I was thinking if I pulled the front floor and inner structure I could get full access to the nose. If not me, at least get it accessible for somebody with the proper skills... Unless any other suggestions. Or just suck it up and enjoy as is...

Fuck man, that really blows.

What if you knocked the headlight bowls out? It could make it a lot easier for one person to hammer and dolly it, and you can put them back in without any OG paint loss.

I was thinking to go through a headlight bucket but I need to get low to address the major damage. I would have to just cut out the headlight support panel and tack it back in later. However, once the kick panels are back in it would hide most of the mangled mess.
Thats why I was thinking to go the hard way and drill out spot welds in both floor and support panel. Then tack it back in, and blend in the knocked down welds.

I want to get this taken care of one way or another. Just not sure best way to attack it. Pisses me of every time I see it.

Progress slowed down a bit,... but then again we had a baby girl last Friday!

Managed to sneak out to the shop when my wife wasn't looking and knocked out my bumpers over a couple nights. I don't have a proper spray system set up, but these 2K cans with hardener are awesome. Check it!

I used the Spraymax system cans, probably the same thing. Filled with Endura paint.

Slow winter but worked on fancy'ing up my engine. Turned a damaged 36hp shroud and doghouse into this unit and I can run the flaps. Nothing new, but figured something to keep me entertained. Hind sight, would have just ran a scat unit but already had this junk laying around. Should slap it in the bus in the next week just in time for our second winter to melt off.

I did the exact same thing and feel the same way about it! Ton of work!

Yeah, but you have the indent for the air cleaner that none of the aftermarket junk has. Looks killer!

Hey Franz,
Thanks! I am happy with it, was a bitch but worked out great.

Fuel pump is just a PTZ brand I picked up locally. I liked the inlet/outlet parallel beside each other, should clean things up a bit.

And the backing plate isn't rotated slightly counter clockwise!
