Truck repair/'05 Upgrade

I know there have been a lot of threads with '05 front end conversion but what's one more.

A couple weeks ago a car decided they wanted to exit at the last minute and cut me off. I got on the brakes, , and the back tires locked since the roads were wet and I went into the wall. It didn't cause too much damage but I needed to replace the fender, inner fender, bumper, header panel, and headlight so I figured now would be a good time to do the '05 front end upgrade.

Pics after the wreck.









I got everything taken off that needed to be replaced. The bottom of the door pulled out nicely with only a chip of paint missing from the fender smashing into it. Once I got everything off I noticed that I will need to do a little work on the radiator/fender support and pull it back out.





I decided since the front end was off, and I put a new transmission in less than 400 miles ago, that now would be a good time for the 31 pass transmission cooler. $110 shipped



I got the damaged part of the radiator/fender support pulled out and repainted. It's not perfect but everything fits properly.



I got the fender and bumper cover back from paint and started the reassembly. I still need to get the pin striping tape and then it will be 100% done.





Complete minus the pin stripes.
