Stakebed Joe.My son has the new 72up CJ5-6-7 Hood in the back of his Suburban. He picked it up in Grassy Valley after work last week. I found it on Facebook Marketplace for $40.00 (stole it). trailhead Joe picked up a 72 up Grille from a ECJ5 Forum member for me in Napa and he will bring it with him this weekend to the BBQ in the Foothills. Once I get both these parts, I can figure where the front cross member and grille/core support goes.. I've been told the hood is 3" longer than the early one which will give me enough room for a real cooling fan on the engine and an adequate radiator for the V8.
The last thing I was doing before running out of wire was moving the fuel filler door. I got the original cut out. Cleaned up the remaining metal and cut a patch panel. I actually got a couple of spot welds on before running out of wire.Thatsa lotta welding!
