    OK what is involved in changing from slant front to flat front obviously apart from swapping panels?

    I also be putting in my quadlights when they arrive

    I have heard the rad support is different that you need a flat front rad support to mount quadlights?

    Is this true or talking shit? I would've thought they would've been the same

    Cheers, Ben.

    So you are going to take 1 late model KE70/AE71 which is relatively clean looking, and make it look shit? Is there not already enough of these around?

    Yes you need the different radiator support to fit quads properly.

    No, do it properly. Trust me its not worth the stuffing around.
    Just go around and drill out all the spot welds
    And you can do what i did too and make the radiator support panel bolt on for easy engine removals

    Bolt in Rad support sounds like a good idea. Might give it a shot!
