Re: Front end alignment (perfectionist input needed!)

Fender was replaced and/or repainted.

Your bumper is missing a few 51111944537. Best to replace all of them fresh though. I’m sure more is missing.

Ok yes Lux use interior chrome handles. I always thought that was an addon. I was referring to the inner handles but was wrong.

Re: Xbrace and comfort

There are several revisions of the x-brace. The last one does not require removal for an oil change and it causes no mess.

Doesn’t surprise me one bit. Gearbox chatter with mine was pretty bad. Obviously the weight and single mass is a large part but balancing was a good idea.

Re: Complete build hiccup

You likely will not have power until the passenger engine bay positive terminal is linked to the driver side fuse box. The engine harness does this.

Re: Xbrace and comfort

I run the buffer but I don’t quite see how it works unless it really does move the distance of that gap (which is significant). It’s supposed to help reduce wheel hop but I can say it doesn’t.

The X brace is the 2 bolt brace just with more welded on it. Identical part.
