Looks like its almost ready for paint! Great job on the front bumper. All those hours are really going to payoff.

been working on taking my front clip off,so i can clean degrease and paint my underhood pieces,and the only proper way to do it is too pull the front clip,havent gotten very far yet but make progress evwerynight so soon it will all be apart,will also make it much easier to drop my motor in there.
