Step One

I had to cut the hinges to get the hood off without mangling it. With the hood off I pulled on the rad support-ish area while thinking what am I going to have to do to get this apart.

Bam, ****ing thing was just sitting there, flipped it off

Pulled the rear fenders off which were horribly re-attached sometime in the early 70's.

Maybe,

I sold the Fox to fund the Miata. There was no other mazda thing, I bought a 323 a few years ago for $125 and beat the crap out of it, sold it for $300 or 500 or something a year later. I sold my MGB a few weeks ago, never did anything with it, never had any solid plans or desire for it.

Waiting for weld on bat wings to come. I will have to cut the perches off the axle and then plan on drilling the axle then welding on the bat wings.

Should give me a good start to putting the front end together.

That looks nothing like a bat wing. Quit trying to make your truck part sound like a caped crusader.
It should be called a dinosaur foot tuning fork assembly.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing
