    I'm looking for pictures of black grill shells against half or full hoods that are a different color. I've found a few on mostly 32 fords. Was this ever an original paint combination? Any make or model welcome ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1462571207.269485.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1462571219.952008.jpg

    I certainly like the look. Here's a Chevy that kind of has it. Keep the pics coming. Thanks ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1462621563.731563.jpg
     
  15. copper, nickel, chrome, stainless or black were what most pre32 cars used on all the cars, with any color.
    i like the look of the contrast.

    That's it , the contrast. With black frame, beam, grill shell and head lights. A plan is coming into focus.

    Planning on doing a satin black shell on my 32 PU with a satin black frame and gloss black chassis parts and a satin cement green body.
