run into a ditch at our last event......replaced the front end with fiber glass fenders and hood. makes it easy to remove and work on the ford 351. Used TR3 rear bumpers on the front. Replaced the rear tires with 295/50R/15s.

Well Les, "Have to pay to play", We all enjoyed the total event and would recommend Wytheville Va. area to all our friends. The Town and surrounding roads are great. Thank you for attending, Been a long time since our last meet up :-)

Was that the same bumper you were using before the accident? I thought you were using TR3 front bumper. I bought a front bumper for mine.

Looking at that again you are only using the bumperetts and not the complete bumper. Is that correct? Did you glue the fenders to the valence to create one unit with the air dam.
