header panel

I put my hood on today. I havnt tried bolting up the header panel yet.
By the picture, i think the front of the core support is bent a bit.....lol,
or perhaps the core support needs somemore shims?
thanks as always

Looks like core support is low, or bumper is too high. How is the door to fender alignment? Eric....P.S. Don't bugger this up!

Check the door to fender gap this will help determine if the core support is high or low...the bumper is also very adjustable.....worK from the doors forward..... I've never eaten a Dungenous Crab, seen 'em in the store though....we have a lot of Blue Claws here on Long Island! E

I agree with Mister E. To me, it looks like the bumper is a bit high. Eric, Dungeness crab are excellent, that's all we have out here (besides imported snow and king crab). I've had blue crab in Maine/Conn/NY, and it's excellent...my girlfriend prefers it over our stuff (she's from NY).....They're all really similar, and all work in a Cioppino!!!!

Hey Top, check all your bumper mounting brackets --- I don't know about on yours but on my 69 the bracket bolt holes are slotted and allow some adjustment. If yours are like that too, it might be all you need.

Jeff, the only problem with Blue Claws is the size/meat ratio...not too much in each, but they are tasty! Eric
