    What did you end up using? It looks much cleaner than the teeth.

    Very nice!

    How's this? The Larry Ernst Ford finished out the grille opening (w/Pontiac grille bar) with a second top bar (inverted).

    Good choice on the grille bar, looks real nice. I do like the idea of using a second upper bar to make an opening like the pic above too, would work really nice with the lowered bumper.

    Great improvement! I don't think the bottom looks unfinished with the exception of the seams from the pan meeting the fenders. How did the new motor turn out?

    ^I gotta thank Nvr racing in Butler, WI for all the machine work and assembly of the short block and making my stock cam and lifters work, they did a great job!
