    I know the 32 firewall bolts to the frame, How does it attach to the cowl on a 32?

    Two bolts at the top centre of cowl, that also hold the hood centre hinge bracket on.
    On my coupe I put six more bolts evenly around the cowl for added rigidity, and also because I had no idea how it was meant to be.
    There is a thread on here specifically about this.

    My good buddy shakey calls this his autumn grill , not quite a winters. all made by himself all in stainless . He is a skilled fabricator. he even found the radiator filler was offset on the repro shell so he corrected that, and made the original non pressure filler cap into a 13lb pressure cap .

    I agree with Don Dillard 99.9% of the time, but I think deuce grilles look great on Model A's.

    I Have Always Felt That A Deuce Grille Is A Big Part Of The Personality... 22254916_1906676896323249_850059435496015474_o.jpg
     
  13. Hey Peckerhead, is that the same grille shell you posted at top of page? Was it green and able to strip that layer of old paint off?

  16. I feel a large part of the appeal of a 32 Grille is the crank hole and can't understand fitting one (new repro) that doesn't have one, they just look wrong, especially on a traditional car. JW

    It's not real but hey what are ya' gonna do. I saw a real one for sale recently and it was over 2k. I still wanted it but I have to prioritize. Thought about getting it and calling it the first piece of my 32 Coupe build. IMG_1554.jpg

    I am just wrapping up this ‘28. I have since put the full hood on to hide the not so H.A.M.B. friendly Ls3.

    ^^^^^^^ - Nice car, one of my favourite styles of rod.
    Love the cowl vent, although it looks a little cold to be utilising it in those conditions............

    This one's on my 27 but it was sectioned in 1952 so I guess it's traditional. DSCN1236 (3).JPG

    edit; I would have also perferred a crank hole but none available when I bought it.
    I did paint the bars cast iron gray to knock down the bling though.
