Fitted the front cross member that is part of the Radiator support.



The new frame rails are slightly taller than the originals, I had to modify the original cross member to get it to fit

Last post for a few months, going away camping with the missus for a week and then into hospital for an operation, all going well I will not be allowed to lift anything for around 12 weeks.
In the meantime I have decided my next task when I get back to it is to remove the drip rails and roof skin, I checked inside the front pillars and they are rusty enough for me to be worried, also will make it easier to get the A pillars and kick panels back in.



The A pillars are rusty behind the door hinge bracket supports so cut it out for repairs
