Boring Grille

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by orange crush, Jan 5, 2010.

  1. The grille in my model A sedan is well, boring. I tried the search feature, with out any luck. Any ideas on an insert to wake it up some? Thanks Carlg
     
  2. maybe a picture of your grille now?

    Paint something on the radiator, just not a skull or anything goth! How bout an orangesicle, or a bottle of orange crush.

    Insert a painted screen in front of the radiator core. Your choice of theme.

    How about a spiderweb, with an orange caught in it? :)

    How about a bigger picture to look at?

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe the grille shell is on the front of the car.

    Nice pic however, a pic of the front of your car might decrease the chances of sarcastic responses like this one :D

    an airbrushed chick in a bikini?

    but to me it looks fine,
    maybe instead of going the painted route..get a chrome or nickle plated shell
     
  21. I'd like to put some sort of an insert behind the shell , maybe something like a cut down 32 insert ?

    You already sem to have a theme with the car. If you start changing the grille it may just look like a cluster fuck. I am not trying to be an asshole but I think the grille helps to balance out the car.

    I have seen this car at a show around the way maybe Syracuse Nats , Rhinebeck or Macungie. I thought the build was carried out very nice

    Leave it, the car looks swell, I love it, although you could spray the grille with sand and glue starfish and shells to it.

  29. I want to maintain the A shell, I just want to put something between the shell and radiator to breakup some of the black. Carlg
