    I'm not sure whether I should give up altogether or work harder to outdo you?...people think I'm nuts for saving the projects I drag home, and you make me look like I'm just patching up a small hole in comparison...great job on saving this one, I can't wait to see it finished and assembled...keep up the great work and enjoy the fruits of your labor...

    Been following along for awhile now and it just gets better and better. The colour looks great. Since you masked the frame I guess you're going red body and fenders and a black frame?

    The grille is a long story. I had an original grille, but had been reworked and many of the bars had been changed. The remaining bars were not in good shape, so I decided to purchase another grille. Found a nice one on ebay, and work started on this one. There was some rust and traces of paint, but sandblasting would have left a porous surface. So we decided to put in a bath of Evapo Rust, and after a day the grille came out looking new. Here are some pics of before and after

    In renaissance times the greatest masters came from Italy, apparently that still holds true. Unbelievable talent and perseverance.
