    That goofy Buick looks like something from a cartoon, or the inlet of a vacuum cleaner attachment. Ridiculous.

    But then, opinions are like assholes.... everybody has one and most of them stink.

    Yeah, the hood is looking good. That'll leave a lot of room for a massive grille.

    Great car. In seeing a lot of Golden Sahara there. And from a custom guy, that's very much a compliment!

    Sweet! Good thing you made it nice and long, that thing's still liable to grow another foot or two!

    Had an idea for the grill a while ago so got hold of a couple of crap mini bumpers to see if it worked, It will mean buying 3 to 8 new stainless ones at £45 each but even if I have to cut and splice 8 I dont think £360 is alot for the grill is it? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You need to finish the fenders before you can figure out the grill. After all they frame the area, and without a frame the grill makes no sense.

    Its a mock up, I call it imagineering seeing things/shapes that are not yet there. You work your way and Ill work mine
     
  15. I always admire your ambition, and I get Imagineering. I think the two horizontal grill parts are a bit over sized, look a bit heavy. just my thoughts, still great craftmanship

    I'm sure you've weighed the options, and will pursue the perfect course for your own vision.
    Personally, my imagination runs toward ornamented mesh.

    Please don't take my comment as criticism. It was just a suggestion, we all do thing differently. There are many roads to the same destination. I have been following your work and am very impressed. Hope to see it finished. Brian:)
