There used to be a 1piece glass ghia Tilt front end available at JC WHITNEY. I think it was a blunt nosed 68.

Can you get a ratcheting box end between the McPherson strut and the fender? Is there anything else you can't get to?

The problem I see is having to remove the windshield to separate the front clip. I'd hoped you'd like the Blue Mamba.

I’ve seen the Blue Mamba before. I prefer the original look without body panel gaps. More work but the look is worth it.

Gotta agree with you on that. Making it not look so obviously modded is cool, to enhance the surprise effect once people figure out what you've done.

Duct taping the panel gaps for that aerodynamic edge.
