      Thank you Motown 454 and Just 1 More for the replies, that gives me some ideas.



      Life always throws curve balls at us when building cars, but any progress IS progress in my opinion. My plan all along was to use the headlights with integrated turn signals in them and turn the turn signal holes into brake cooling ducts. A trip to home depot came up the PVC reducers that fit the hole perfectly. I then trimmed them down to fit the curves of the bumper, and installed some ram air tubing and sleeves that just happened to fit beyond perfectly.I'll paint them later. I went backwards a bit when I found out the pass side strut rod bracket is wallowed out and I have two of the same side strut rods. Although I did get the drivers side bracket restored. Next up is the rear springs and bushing replacement.

      This update: I got the rear end mostly done, long wheel studs installed along with new brakes and seals. Its a regular width 8.8 from a 2000 Explorer, with 4:10 posi. I didn't need to narrow it with the wheel offset I'm running as it centers them almost exactly in the wheel wells. I cleaned up the original Go Pack HD springs and replaced all of the bushings with Polygraphite. The spring hangers were mopar offset hangers, that I had to unoffset to locate the spring properly. New HD polygraphite hangers are backordered but will be here in Dec. I'm going to fit a center pull ebrake from a Mustang and use the factory Explorer e brake cables. The front end kit should be here soon! Next up I have to pull the drivetrain out to fix a stud, clean some things up and weld in the trans tunnel.

      The back end is getting there, but it needs another inch drop in my opinion to close up the gap on top of the tire. But that will have to wait until it is running and driving at its full weight.

      Definitely wait until it's on it's full weight, but I think the gap looks just right.
