I have always thought a stock 32 grille shell is to tall for a Model A. I am not alone. Most folks say it needs to come down 2". So, when I was acquiring parts I latched on to a Walker 32 radiator with a 2" chop. I also bought a Brookville 32 shell and a Dale's Manufacturing insert. The original plan was to cut out the sides of the shell so it would drop down 2". But then I got to thinking about chopping the shell. I remembered a Ron Covell article in Street Rodder where he chopped a 32 shell using a counter intuitive technique. I contacted Ron via the internet asking for a mind refresher. He replied that the article was so old he did not have digital photos. One thing led to another and my shell was on it's way to California to be the guinea pig for an updated article. I also arranged to have a Dale's 2.5" chopped insert sent to Ron for the photos. Then, at a local rod run I met a gentleman who had been a hot rodder in his youth. And he told me he had a stock 32 grille shell in his attic that he would sell. The price was right. So now it is mine. The first three photos show my recently acquired stock grille shell mocked up. The second three photos show the chopped Brookville shell mounted to the chopped Walker radiator. Two options that I have not shown are the stock shell channeled over the 2" chopped radiator and the stock shell channeled 1". I'm not cutting my original shell until I an absolutely sure that is what I want to do. Any opinions? Given the quality of the pictures this is not a fair question to ask. But any input will be helpful (and very much appreciated).
