    After searching for a 48 cadillac grill for a long time i finally got one from a h.a.m.b`er about a year ago. And this week the fitting of the grill finally started. Norwegian kustomizer Kjetil Kvipt is doing most of the work. And I must say it`s looking good!

    here`s a few "in progress" pics.

  2. That looks cool! It's different and still good looking! I'd say it's an improvement.

    Looks great and a nice installation!

    Looks really good Kenny.
    Glad you finally found your perfect grille.

    Cant wait to see it all in one color... hopefully shiny.

    Thanks Guys!

    Rik, I am sad to say that I cant afford new paint for next season. The car needs a lot of bodywork before paint. But when that time comes I want to go with shiny.

    I am shure re-chromeing of the grill is gonna set me back some $$ to.

    Cal-paul, your car looks nice to!
