    I like the grille treatment. Are you going to extend the teeth to the bottom gravel pan or leave them floating up that high?

    Maybe extend and taper the bottoms to look like teeth?

    The plans are to add a couple inches to the bottom of the teeth then form them to look like they are originally part of the teeth

    Hotrod95 you better take care of this young lady, she definitely has your best interests at heart! The first thing my wife bought me right after we got together was a set of sun visors for my '56 F100. I knew she was my kinda girl right then!:D

  29. Good job.
    Nothing like that feeling of accomplishment you get when you drive something you built.
