    Drivers side dog leg. This dog leg was way out of shape and did not even come close to matching the curve of the door gap. Cut through both of the curves, repositioned and rewelded. Very time consuming but happy with the final result. Still a tiny bit of welding and grinding to be finished off.

    Small repair to the edge before installing the dog leg...

    Repaired the rust on the lower edge of the windscreen/dash edge. Made the repair pieces a little bit higher and that allowed me to carefully linish the edge back...

    Front is now on and feel like things are moving in the right direction. I also cut and shut the bullet indicator mounts as the KF nose had them pointing in the air a little. Didn't get pics of this though...

    Outer valance welded in place....

    Trial fit to see how it lines up...

    Wiper holes didn't line up from the lower windscreen so these required cutting and moving. Forgot to get picks of this process other then this one...

    Lower windscreen lined up and plug welded from the back and headlight buckets welded in...

    Made these jigs before pulling the nose off. Got the idea after seeing a mates build. Used them to help line everything up and get the windscreen gap dialed in...

    Welded and grinding...

    Edges plug welded and folded around to finish off the sides...

    Rolled it over to plug weld the bottom edge from underneath...

    Used this door skinning tool to crimp the side and bottom flanges. It did a really neat job...
