I did the front bumper with dad's help many years. All I can say is, be patient, take your time.

Thanks for the pictures, I've wondered about swapping from auto to manual. My question about that is, when you modified the trans tunnel for the zf, why did you fiberglass it instead of weld it? or did you do both?

Thanks to Brett Henderson providing guidance (see the following), it goes together fairly easily..."easily" is a relative term!

What I'm trying to say is, it is an iterative process; one only made easier when affixing the panels in a specific order:

The key is starting at the doors; the beltline being your guide:

Align the gill panels and then align the bumper.

The attach the hinges/shims and lay the hood down, but do not latch it.

adjust the shims to align the front edge of the hood with the bumper: height and left to right. Snug the hing bolts up (for now) and loosen the dagger pin plates (3 bolts ea.) so the daggers can align themselves with the latch plates.

NOTE: secure the latches OPEN so as not to affect the dagger's alignment. I used grease on the dagger pins and wiped the latch plates clean soas to better see if the daggers are aligning properly. LOTS OF TRIAL AND ERROR throughout. (Took me half a day worth of fussing with the hood and ancillary pieces to get all the gaps uniform and surfaces aligned.)

Last step: Go around and tighten all the adjustments...BEFORE taking it out for that first drive!! Ask me how I know...

Can't hardly wait to see that and get your reactions when it is done!

64 Scout...FYI.
I did the Auto to ZF swap. I used Marine-tex (no fiberglassing) and in looks like it came from the factory that way, actually better than I had hoped. It is also a VERY strong repair. The trans tunnel is made of SMC fiberglass, so that is why he chose to use fiberglass. You could use tiger hair, JB weld, fiberglass mat and resin or Marine tex like me and I believe all will be a satisfactory repair. Thing is to take your time and do it well.

Gotcha. I guess I was assuming the trans tunnel was steel like almost every other car. Fiberglass on steel seemed like an odd repair.

Im going to go torched route instead of my LTCC, anyone looking for an Ltcc setup for there vette let me know! i need more functionality out of the LS PCM and i tune with EFI live already so it'll be a lot easier for me. will be using a custom OS on it and tune it and make a few maps one being E85, 110Oct, and 93. looking for 650-600 FWHP. i think its achievable with 12:1 SCR and a solid roller cam with lots of lift and good duration. 104 LSA =)
