Hatch is aligned best we can get it,moved the driver sponson back 1/4" ,slotted the pass side rear pin forward some and adjusted both rear springs far as they would go to the pass side

Seems to be within 1/16" left right but still seems a tad twisted so idk

Got the dash rifle mounts installed20210320_172557.jpg

I used 1/8" steel ,couldn't get the same thickness local as the sponsons right now

I left about a 3)4" gap at the top and the verticle part goes back on an angle towards the pipe where it's welded

Got these on today, 3m tape was nfg so used boat adhesive, the armored grille sides need washers behind them to take up gap

And you need to cut out a spot the armor grille side panels as shown to allow for clearance 20210428_093024.jpg

Wipe the hood and panel with laquer thinner first, hoods rigid now, also used that to fix a crack

Use an acid brush if you need to smooth the adhesive and wear disposable gloves

Laquer thinner will wipe off the excess20210428_113055.jpg20210428_092740.jpg20210428_184506.jpg
