That won’t work, however I can build it without the bolt on panel so that it is just smooth across the front. It’s what I call my 1 piece grille.Nice! If someone wanted to retain a more stock look, would it be possible mount to the grille insert behind the frame and weld rather than bolt in?
I am seriously considering making the headlight housings for the 60 and 62. I have had several guys interested and asking. Just don't want to waste my time on it, as I am starting headlight housings for the 100 series LX 470. And that is going to be tough.I didn’t read anywhere but were you planning on trying to do the headlight surrounds?
Can you guys tell me what exactly is wanted for the headlights on the 60? It already had 7" rounds, what would I do other than build a front bezel that is steel? I will be building 7" conversion headlight housings for the 62, but is there any reason I should do that on the 60? That sounded like a really dumb question.
Got it. That is what I thought. CNC would be way better than how I would do it.The headlight bezel mounting tabs are brittle and most are held on by only a couple fasteners instead of 4. The chrome plating is peeling and is a PITA to strip, etch and paint. Even then they start peeling again. I had about 20 sets that I threw away before the move that were cracked, scratched, rock chipped and missing one or all tabs.
It is WAY down on my machining list, but I would CNC mill them eventually if no one else does it first.
