Now it's time to weld on the brackets this bumper will bolt to.
a 2 x 6 and a jack holds it in place while he sets the brackets....
He's tack welding them ...then he'll remove the jack and 2 x 6 and finish up.
Jim used to race Top Fuel Dragsters....had to do a lot of the work himself...not like today with a big crew. He also had a shop building super charged engines for street rods....that is what he was doing when I met him...went to lots of car shows.
Working on the rest of the "bright work".
It will have a lot more shiny stuff on it than I like but that is what the new/old front end had.
