    The picture on the far left is the one from Roy and he got it from Masterson.

    hey bro, any updates???

    as for my vote I would need to see the first one straight on, is that an late 40's olds grille? the second one looks pretty rad but I would lose the tubing behind the floating bar myself...

    cmon man updates, you cant leave me hangin here!!!

    My vote goes for the second grille, followed closely by the first one.

    The far left grill is my favorite. But then again my tastes are questionable. ;-)

    Here is the new grille I may run? I bought all the pieces here off of the hamb and had Justin Fields here in Hutch tig weld all the pieces together. Had to level out and trim up the bullets, slot holes in the sides of them for the center bar to go through it and bolt up add base plates, etc etc etc. Im sure it took a lot of time to make it all go together and thus is why I left it in his more than capable hands to do it for me.
    I primed the front end just so I can run a block over it all and see where i'm at on it and while I was at it I threw some color at it to see if i liked it blue? I'm thinking more of a purple pearl over light blue, but We'll see what happens as I actually have a little time this week to bodywork and do more fab work on my car. For those of you that are gonna say - the latch post behind the grill will be removed I just didnt feel like unbolting everything to mock the grille in there.

    To any of those that care: PM me an offer on the car. Getting too busy doing other stuff and never have time to work on it.

    Cars looking good but all those grilles look kinda bulky. what about 2 floating 51 kaiser grilles and section a piece of the top grille to fit into the opening.

    Say it ain't so, Danny! Just a passing moment of frustration . . . Hate to see you give up on it. So what if it takes years instead of months. I'm President of that club.
