That looks great.
You do it yourself?
I like this winter to try and do something like that on my 66

Yes. Pretty easy. I used a big cut off wheel ( OK 20 of them ) with a grinder and cut straight down from 1/2 inch away from the inboard shock tower bolt. I stopped when I got to 1/2 inch away from the control arm mount. I bent up a 10 gauge plate to a 90 degree bent and set it over the cut away area. Then I traced out the area that was cut away from underneath and then cut the pleate to match. Then I welded it on and dressed it up. Took maybe 4 hours.

The quality was great. The fit was horrible. I had to grind here, bang there, move one tube etc. Dont know if its because I am using aftermarket prothane urethane mounts with FE perches though. It may be all my fault. Anyway They make the only 2 inch primary header in town for those chassis so short of having $1500 custom headers made i'd say they were a good deal. I had mine coated after they were fit by jet hot. LOTS of ground clearance.and they hug the frame well.
