Oh it’s great that you have that much confidence in yourself, I wouldn’t have had. I would have had to crank it and check all its  vital signs before puttin fenders and everything back together  ...carry-on 😊

Bumper is back on.  Its slightly out on the driver's side but won't move in any further.  Guess I'll shim out the passenger side later.

Put the antenna up to where it clears the garage door and leave it there.  The old nylon actuator cord has only so much life it before it snaps on you.

 

Funny how noisy they are, eh?

 

Nice work on the body gaps, by the way.  The car came back together very nicely!
