You can see the hood latch sticking up from the center and also farther in the back you can see the black bolt heads that are the fender bolts.
The hood is now done with detail. The front hood latch connecter is made from brass.

Todays work is a Una ball joint, This ball joint is a rod puhsed press fitted into the a-arm and spindle and then two nuts hold it in place. The top A-arms from Howe ent, are a triangle top. The bottoms will be the square top that holds in the sleave. The uppers are in the a-arms now, And waiting for me to machine up the bottom ones so i can connect the front end all together.

Here is the axle spacer for the rear end and hold the caliper and rim. This will be painted black to blend in with the axle housing. Front spindle done and drop .100 center on this as to raise the front end up a little. This helps the ride height a lot.

Upper A arms are now bolted in place and spindles are now also on. Rack and Pin with tie rods connected and mock up so they can be painted. The painted Rack and tie rods. Every thing is bolted together and also has moving parts to be able to connect the front end with out binding it all up.

Last ride height check before final build. The steering is all in place and the front end is now done and so is the chassis work other then clean up and polishing to be done. Ground clearnce you can see now the front end is not sitting on the ground and even though it's a little higher then I wanted it will work so nothing is dragging the ground. Showing the front end all done and the rack and pin steering connected to the spindles. This was a very long job trying to get every thing to line up and not fall apart to bolt in the right spots.

Able to do all this work goes to learning from people on here and the great guys like Hollywood Jim, Mark D Jones, Bob Wix and Tom Nungester and others from the GSL show. I'm not sure if I would be able to do this or even be pushed to do stuff like this if it was not for there input and help.

Thank you all.
