Default Do I get Medal or Somethin' 56k alert

It'* official, I've spilt blood over (mostly on) a Bonneville. Do I get some sorta award (besides a Dumb A## sitation from Mos). Too much of the headlight was left too close to the mounting bracket.
make this:


look like this:


with just this:

Well...... you'll also need a Leatherman Wave multitool.....and maybe a 10mm deep well that someone borrowed so you'll have to go get another one, 3 or 4 socket extensions and 1/4 " nut driver and a 7mm socket.........
(note bandaid concealing horrific gash)

cool, unibody looks just like mine. did you bother someone for under hood/heght measurements yet?

a High Lift farm jack, and a chain were used to get mine within, IIRC 2mm of factory.

Dame is right. I can give you the underhood dimensions when you're ready. Please check them before trying to put the car back together. It'll save you alot of work. All the Admins and some of the mods and gearheads can give you this info. Damemorder may still have it from his fiasco too

Thanks for the offers LADIES and gentlemen, But my good neighbor is going to put it on his frame straightener for me. (I know .....its cheatin' on the shade tree scale but after HALF A CENTURY on this ROCK, most of that jack hammerring the rock itself, I'll let the hydraulics an laser micrometers do that much). Besides, I'll be keepin' us all busy trying to figure out if or how I can get shed of that nasty charcoal canister and using the hole for a CAI intake. (it'* protected all the way around, its big all the way around and the added airflow will keep that big silver box cooler too). Okay Will, tell me why I can't do it

Almost forgot progress report: got big parts today but the salvage yard oem H/L Assy. had a D##ned BB hole in it, and all the silvering had gone away. Oh well got an aftermarket kit comming for less money.
