Cut the front frame horns back and also cut the upper rad suppport to allow for a stand-up radiator setup

Today was a progressful day.I pull all the harness out of the interior.Pulled the dash and removed all the harness from the dash.Removed the door panels and pulled the harness out of the doors.I ordered a set of carbon fiber door panels from dmh fabrication and waiting on them to show.I am ordering a rocker swith panel to run all the necessities.I will keep updates when possible.
