hi benl,thanks for your comments :D i put on the front end in pieces the drivers headlight panel and the passenger headlight panel/inner wing were seperate from the front slam panel both the head light panels were from renault and the slam panel was from beevers panels they have got a web site they are really cheap and fit really well,but if your car needs the whole front end eg with crossmember you can buy the whole panel with the headlight panels and slam panel in one from renault for about £110,the slam panel was easy to remove as was the headlight panels they are just spot welded they are easly drilled or body chisled off,if your doin the whole front end you will have to be carefull seperating that inner wings as you can see by my posts i had to replace the drivers side with one from another car hence its red,hope this is helpfull to you dont hesitate to ask any more questions if you get stuck cheers baz

no probs benl,if you leave the cross member on theres no movement because that and the sub frame hold it steady you must always fit wings and bonnet tho to get the true alignement and all your gaps correct then i just vise gripped everything and you know yourself just a couple of tacks and then away you go :D it is very satisfying building a car from the ground up,is yours really rotten at the front or is it not bad? youll have to post some before and after pics mate 8)
