  • convert front end to one piece

    Anyone ever try to turn a fiber hood,fenders, and grille into a one piece flip up hood. I was looking at cj and though it could be done. Just wanted to know if anyones tried it before. Don't want to buy a one piece.

      If all 4 of your front pieces are in good shape and glass I'd consider trading you a 1 pc glass front clip for them.

        Don't know anyone around my area who has one. I just think it would be easier to work on if it had a tilt foward hood. Just throwing around the idea

          They would be a whole lot easier to work on without the front fenders in the way. BUT I got so much stuff mounted on the fender wells, where do ya put it?

            Forward tilt hood

            My 83 CJ7 had a 1 peice front tilt. The items that where bolted to the fender wells where bolted to the firewall, but that was only the starter solenoid. The headlight wiring was run along the radiator support rods from the firewall. The tilt was nice when I had to change out the leaking intake gasket you could stand right next to it. I'd add the pics but there in my laptop. Redtail, youre fan controller would be a pain...
