    Progress on 51. Added to hood to delete running the trim. As well as modified my grill to Just floating grill bar.

    In the process of the same thing. Trying to figure out who it wants to be when it grows up. Look forward to following your progress.
     
  22. Welcome from southern New Mexico! How about just a floating cross bar grill or '54 Buick grill?
