Also a nice pic of the Tree Norman Greenbomb somehow got wedged between the spare tire and body.

I was way to lazy to bust out my tools, so Brian just grabbed his entire bag from his truck. It was a 10-minute job for the temp fix, until it got pretzeled a 2nd time .

Or an avocado, my swiss army knife, and a snorkel. Trust me, I've made tie-rods out of less!

The 2nd time around only took about 20 minutes, once i figured out that the anti-roll bar mount was crushed and it required an ass whooping from BFH to get the tie rod to drop in place.

Brian's tool bag to the rescue X2

Made me some NLA parts. About $25 worth of galvanized conduit. Had to buy a $45 conduit bender though.

Here is a decent comparison... the hood has been polished and the vent area had not been done yet.

Had to do that part by hand due to the roll bar
