Yes, It will probably attached later this week. Probably not finished, but will be fitted. We are going to repair some of the bondo, before that gets welded on. Use straightened pieces from the original clip, to patch the bondo areas of the reasonably straight one.
Cars DO rust in SoCal.

Right, a friend who just happens to have recently built a late notchback out of odds and ends is a good friend to have!

Don, it has been at least 3 years, since I got the clip.
Today Bob spent most of the day fitting the clip, and repairing rust. Both on the original car, and the replacement front clip.
