Nice work on all counts.

Is that front end OE or a fiberglass unit?

(If glass - the next question is going to be how much did it weigh?).

Keith I know the 75 76 Glass Laguna Nose weighs in at 36 Pounds (US BODY SOURCE)  so this can't be more than That I would imagine, Also being in Norway I dont know how easy it would have been for him to get it there ? From US BODY SOURCE that is I dont know if they ship overseas

It’s an OE front clip that I picked up at Sundell Auto Wrecking outside Atlanta. And yes, with the weight of that thing it was not air freighted to Norway......
