ZH & LTD Front panels??

Hi all, I've just bought another (very good nic) 78 LTD complete front
for my XC ute. Have already fitted up the guards and bonnet and while
trying to fit the old front(so I could take some pics and post here,looks great)
I discovered that I could't possibly fit all the retaining bolts from the front
panel to the guards and radiator support.

So, do I have to treat this as a "walk off front" and prefit the nose panel
to the guards and then onto the front of the car?

Please help, I'm busting to post some pics, I think you'll like the look.

Thanks in advance, Will.

Re: ZH & LTD Front panels??

Panels should botl straight on. If anything, fitting the P6 LTD nose cone to front fenders is easier than bolting the ZH ones on. If you have the front guides slightly loose all the way around, make sure that all studs in the nose cone are in place and the htreads are clean and lubricated, and then fit the nose cone on.

You may need to slightly move the front fenders (get a mate to help) and then once on, you can then come in from the top (either side of the bonnet catch) as well as come up from under neath to fit the nuts on. When all lined up, test close bonnet and align as required.

Please post pics when done.
