    Lately I've been working on hanging the front bumper and fitting the assorted pieces together. I love the feeling of digging parts out of hiding and cleaning and prepping them for final install.
    Also with some help from our friend Andrew , I've been working on programming the Dominator ECU. Andrew suggested that I download the latest Holley software (V2 to V4) . As I'm no computer ace the simplest task can be a major chore for myself. I'm much better with a wrench than a keyboard. What would take someone that knows what they're doing in minutes takes me hours lol. Anyhow I believe I got it figured out. I'll be busy for the next 4 days or so , attending a family wedding so things will have to wait. A break from things is always good.

    Version 4 is not the latest, but for what you're doing, I saw no reason to go to version 5. I still run v4.

    There is nothing in v5 that you need. I only like to upgrade only when there is a legitimate reason, like taking you from v2 to v4. A lot for be had with that upgrade.

    I managed to update and program the ECU after plenty of swearing and tugging on my hair , I'm not totally on point when it comes to computers and such. I'm sure it's a lot easier than I make it out to be. Anyway she runs great. I had to pull the front fenders off to make adjusting the doors easier. The door glass frames were making contact with the rear glass frames. Simple adjustment, they fit great now. Also , I assembled the front end and looking at my options as far as grille design. CAD time. The lower turn signals are no longer turn signals plus they are LEDs. I have LEDs for the headlights and turn signals as well as halos , which I haven't installed yet.

    Looking good.

    Are you thinking of the grille staying vertical or possibly going horizontal to follow the body lines?

    I'm starting to realize a lot of older cars look great with body colored bumpers.
    Cars are meant to be driven.

    Not sure just yet , there is some honeycomb style plastic sheet on Ebay that I like. Lots of options , I was thinking of using part of the original grille but I don't really want to butcher it up when somebody might be able to use it. The grille area is really not that big , each side is approx 8"x11".

    After work today I started play around with an idea for the grille. I brought out the shrinker/stretcher and some 18g steel. I cut out some 11/4" strip , bent a 90 in them and started shrinking . The idea is to build a frame to sit the grille material in. Just messing around but I like what I'm seeing.

    Which LED headlights did you end up going with? I've been looking at the various options and having a tough time deciding.

    Back at the grille today , Sunday is always a good day to grill ! Haha ! . There is more to this than meets the eye , you have to thinks three steps ahead . How will this go together , how will this come apart , how do I mount this , most important is will this stay intact motoring down the highway ?. Oh ya , does it look good ?. I know it will look good or it won't be there. The panel under the headlights is just a flat piece 2"x16" , I'm thinking leave it as is or maybe 3/4" dimple die holes ? , I like options . One more thing , please note the bumper adjustment OLDFLM ! . He PM'd me on his concern of the bumper gaps on the corners. This is one of the reasons that I like being on here is the input that I get from others. I had planned on adjusting the fitment but he was there to remind me to not let it slide , thanks again OLDFLM. Since this project hasn't left the shop since day one and really the only people that have looked at this machine have been family and a couple of neighbors , input from you gearheads is always a good thing. Thanks.
