You may have to put a little left side english in the steering. with the huge reduction in resistance on the drivers side, the passenger side resistance will pull you off the road!

Hey that special limited edition pearly white licensed Disney World Epcot Park "golfball" front driver's side fender is worth every penny. Going for top dollar on craigslist right now lol.

Today I hammered on it a little more after welding a crack and a couple mounting tabs up a day or two ago. Then I lightly scuffed it and attempted to spray some white on it but my spray can was too old and not doing well. So Ill try a new can this weekend. Rust repair starts soon maybe. I tidied up the garage a little while I waited for the bird that has been attacking our vehicles at work. Bird is dead now btw. No pics, I was too busy bird watching...

One of the pair is endangered. The other is extinct.

Today was welding day. It went ok but my welds look like **** and I forsee minor grinding in my future. But the job is done and the Rangers radiator support has been reinforced. It should hold. Soon I will be painting again and then final assembly. I hate welding rusty thin metal.
