Luckily I have a 96 sport so I believe all I have to account for is the battery, air box, pcm, and the hood lift spring... Their battery bracket looks simple enough to work and the thor intake fixes that... Just leaves the pcm and spring. Hopefully I can figure those out haha

Re: Front inner fender trimming

Saweet!!

As for relocating stuff... duct tape? Lol

So whatís the big difference between your 96 and say my 97? The windshield washer fluid bottle? I thought the pcm was closer to the firewall too?

Good stuff man, might be going down that road soon myself. The amount of work however is pretty close to dove nose.. luckily I have a to-do list thatíll keep the sawzaw away from my front end at least until you finish yours. Hope the rest goes smooth boss

Front inner fender trimming

Drivers side mostly burnt in. The last picture shows my largest gasp in the whole job... Some time wire to help the mig fill it and we'll be good to go.

Front inner fender trimming

Anyone have thoughts on inner fender paint? When I did the rear cut and fold I used flat black covered with rust-oleum"pro" undercoating. It's held up well so far but wanted to here the opinions of the pros here.

Re: Front inner fender trimming

I haven't done front fenders but I have done my rears. I brushed on a couple of coats of zinc oxide primer on the bare steel. I used fine abrasive paper to give every layer a good key. Then a few coats of some rattle can gloss whatever I had available. When dry another keying rubdown followed by a spray coat of adhesion enhancer before spraying over with black U-POL Raptor.
