Hooligan 01 to 06 front end swap

I got just about all the parts for the new front end. The parts that need paint are being painted this week so I started the teardown of the front end today.

Bumper removal




Then the rest came off!!



More to come....

Thanks to all the members who came to help out today, the front end swap is done pending the hood trim!



The new visor




Going in the body shop this week to get the hood trimmed and then it will be completely done!
