We was sitting around and I had told Earl sometime this week we would yank the bumper to get rid of some of the bling, bling. Earl left and Aryan ask me about the guards. He said he could do it. I said I wonder what size bolt they are. He tells me they are 3/4". He didn't even look at the bolt. I grinned and told him if he wanted to take them off go ahead. He was right about it being 3/4 by the way. If he liked his school work as much as working on cars he would be working at NASA some day.

Still wanted to clean up more of the do dads. So I used the surround for the front plate and put it on the back. This let me get the tag and huge lights off the rear.

The plate stuck out and looked funny. I rolled it around a piece of 4" PVC to follow the bumper.


Later on the bumper guards will come off too. We moved them over for now to hide the splits for the 3 piece bumper. The splits will be welded up and ground smooth, someday.

All those old gaurds and stuff looked pretty neat. Some Lowrider would probably pay a fortune for all the iron.

Looking very good! Nice to see it's out and about. What are the remaining areas that need immediate attention? How are the brakes, wipers and blower motor?

Later,
