Re: street legal??

I would put steel doors and frontend on it if you plan on driving it on the street. It will be alot of work to adapt everything onto your fiberglass frontend. Also looks to be a one piece front end and lexan glass that wont roll dont.

the front clip is one whole pice i was thinking in posting up the front clip for sale or trade for an original 1968 metal front clip. and the doors too. the windows dont roll down... so i should get rid of them.

Re: street legal??

I knew a few people that hated fiberglass front ends on the street. Yes they were light but they also are not to sterdy, plus I would hate to be in an accident with one.

Best thing I think you should do is like suggested above, sell the front end and get the steel parts.

I'd also sell the doors and the lexan. Lexan on the street is not good in my opinion. Even though they say it's scratch resistant, they can be scratched, plus making them able to roll up and down is possible, but it's more of a pain then anything. I have seen people using Dzus fasteners for the side windows and when the wanted to take them off they pop the fasteners, but then again that's a lot of work and to me not worth it.
