    Hi, I have looked at your photos and don't mean any disrespect but it appears to me you have installed the grill upside down. If you did it on purpose that is O.K. too. Just thought I would merntion it to you. Congratulations on the show. Larry I put the same grill in my car.

    Well no different way to mount grill without part of grill )) well ,soon as possible I buy central part of grill or make anything else from another parts ,or buy another grill .in to beginning am thought what will be easy to by desoto grill ,but real situation is different,weight (what important for delivery ) and price for normal (not good ,not best ) condition too high and finale price will be x2 ,well am waiting for best price and try to make it by CNC from Full 3D cad models Rhinoceros makes

    [​IMG]. Well ,after exhibition on service place we are check all paintwork again and found small problems.Shrinkage or drawdown I don't know exactly now it call in English correctly,but am think something like that.Multicomponent composition of paint go to deep under the roof ,and we must paint roof again for perfect looks of the roof .it take about 2 weeks ,well I hope after 2 weeks more another works will been completed too ,I mean interior works or wind frames ,small carpets and something else.

    And now we have a practice and knowledges about chop of merc ,and may reshape all in this project ,but all another parts missing ,and all parts delivery make this project non real to be completed for all time .because usual price for usual rusty but completed merc will been about 15-25-30k $ and 2k for delivering and 20k $ for tax ,it will be more and more cheap than buy all parts and pay for their delivery
