This is my first year of street stock and I am wondering how you line up the nose to fit properly any hints would be great

Fit the radiator, fenders, and hood first. If it's a metric monte type car you probably want the hood to go under the nose. If its a later fwd body you can go over the nose. (I just did this one) Set it where you want, clamp it on four corners, do a visual check for looks and rivet in place. Most noses do not fit very good width-wise. You may have to trim some plastic.

Remember its just a fooking racecar. It's gonna get trashed.

Racefan if you don't already have the nose peice when you get it this is how I did mine. Bolt the halves together and then trim the front of your fenders off so its just the one layer of sheetmetal. Then You will notice on the nose piece it has a tapered recessed section. Just slide the nose piece inside the fenders and pop-rivet. As for the hood I ended up cutting some of the front edge off mine and used a fifth hood pin right in the center. http://www.rcracing-team.com/RC08-2004-33.JPG
