Life Lessons II

Step 4 (not shown): Clean decades of clay off of the grill and attempt to polish it but give up and say, "It's better than it was before and that's all I ever try to accomplish."

Step 5: Bolt on the new (old) grill. You're almost there. Not really. That's the easy part.

Step 6: Mount the headlights. Make sure they are lined up correctly. This is key. You'll have to finagle it. Somehow.

Step 7: Repeat on the other side. If you want to be like me, and I know that you probably don't, grab a 40 year old aluminum shovel that you were probably going to throw away because 36 years of New Hampshire winters and a couple of Virginia winters have done it in, and cut a piece out that you can use as a makeshift tab.

THAT, my so-called friend is recycling.

You may also call it ingenuity. I approve of either.

Step 8: Slap on the bezels and be proud, but remember that you still need to drill two 5/8 inch holes into the hood to mount the bar that hides that hideous gap. Have nightmares.
