Front clip replacement

.jpg   Mach 1 front clip.jpg (Size: 29.17 KB / Downloads: 2,119) Hello from Indiana, I finally decided to post something. I am putting a replacement clip on the front of my Mach 1. I have owned the car since 1982 when I was a sophomore in High school. I (and my oldest brother)repainted the body then but it has structural rust I am sure you all know about. I was going to purchase and repair and fab up all of the parts I needed for the front cowl aprons etc but I found a front clip instead because the rust was extensive. This is a family project and my sons and daughter and I are going to work on. I took a couple of Pics yesterday so I decided to post a couple. I thought some of you might like to see the jig I am using. Thank you for having this forum available I have enjoyed looking at your cars and reading your posts. Reading about the projects helps keep me motivated. I know I can learn from the members post and I may have a thing or two to politely offer in the form of advice for you all as well.

Here's something I've posted in the past just in case you need it.

My hat is off to you guys that do this extensive repairs. Some of the members here just do awesome work. I like to think I am pretty good, but I know some of the guys here are just way over the top of what I am capable of.
Welcome, hope the project goes well.
