I think there's some variation in the front attachment of one-piece front ends. Many have the small front bumper that also has a hinge on it, making the front end a tilt/one-piece front end.

Seems like there's probably going to be some fabrication involved if you don't have the tilt setup. My car, for example, has a tube going across, with a couple of uprights that use hood pins (like on a drag car, etc.). I can probably find a couple pics if you're interested in seeing what I'm talking about...

I also have some ideas if you send me your email address I will send you some easy ways to mount a one piece using a stock beam or custom beam. Let me know if you want me to make something.

Later -

Here's a basic idea of how mine's set up (was done by previous owner). The ends of the bows slip into cups (with bolts that go through to hold them in) that mount the front cage supports to the top of the beam.




OLD PIC! But shows how the car used to be set up.
