  1. Yep...it was the very same comment that made me ask my engine builder to check the cover. He had the same comments. The mesh was replaced and all looks good...I haven't started the motor yet so all the pit falls of a Nailhead has me concerned.

    Thanks for the video...the info here is amazing.

  2. Good theory....I was going to go with the "access hole" idea but it is rather small.

    Same sort of thing with my Jeep Liberty. The antenna is on the passengers side but on the drivers side is a "Trail Rated " badge circular and exactly the same size shape and location as the hole required to mount the antenna.

    The theory was that they got it wrong and stamped all the wrong fenders at the start, used to badge to cover the hole....then just kept using it. I haven't been able to prove it though but it does sound plausible.

    Great job laying out your resto Jim...I can only hope newbies see it and learn that full frame off's are not required to get a Full restoration done, in your driveway no less.

    I have to say all three of your threads are bookmarked for reference. Like Matt just said, I doubt you guys realize your influence on some of us...

    I have a bookmark called "Start Here" and its for this very thread. My frame is about to be delivered from the powdercoater and thanks to this thread I have a step by step on what to do next.

    All jokes aside...thank you!
