Lets get started with the conversion
First remove hood, front grille, headlights, front bumper, and fenders.
I wont be going over on how to remove those parts because its pretty easy and if you cant remove those parts i would suggest you stop now before going further as the conversion gets a little harder after removing those parts.

Lay out the new support, this is just to see where things will go.


Next is probably the hardest and time consuming part
I'm going to show you where you'll have to drill out the spot welds, pretty obvious but ill circle them in red on the pictures, the easiest way is to get a drill bit designed to remove the spot welds, I didn't have one so i had to use a normal drill bit
Passenger side



Middle section

Driver side




As you can see the stock crash beam has this metal bar that was used to hold to stock bugeye bumper

but as you can see on this next picture it gets in the way of the new headlight bracket and it needs to be removed
