Default HEY GUYS!

Found this on the internet.

http://www.partstrain.com/products/A....html?sku=5146

Right now, the rad support for the rad and condensor has rotted. its gonna need some very serious repairs in the not too distant future. Then I came across this. Hmm, that sounds pretty nice.

Question is, you all know where it rots there ehh? Mine'* bad. I have pretty good bodyskills, and I am pretty sure I can do this replacement. I'd do the entire assembly, no problem. But, does it fit good? Anyone done this before?

I know its not an overnight job. Its gonna be alotta work for sure. The car is being parked next summer, and gonna spend some time doing some bodywork, like paint, etc. (hello SC 3800 maybe).

Advice appreciated.. Thanks!

Tim...I've kinda been there..done that.

Buddy got a cavi that was front ended into something more immobile. He got a front clip from a JY and then drilled the spot welds. Poof.. it seperates. After that.. he got a ton of the body bolt up clips and used them for reassembly. The car was pretty solid and didn't seem overly bad after that.

Now..if you had the abilty to weld the new piece back in...that would be awesome.
