    This was one of the crazier projects I did. All the smaller ribs on my grill were to bent to save so I cut them out. They were stamped sheet metal with a continuous curve and I couldn't figure a way to reproduce them. So I bought some 5/16 steel, cut out the curved shape with a plasma and then ground them to shape and cut a groove in the back side to lighten them up a bit. They came out OK, a little heavier than stock but Ok. These grills are impossible to find in good condition.

    In that picture - you wouldn't know you had performed all that surgery on the grille. Good work!

    I've been working on eliminating the wing windows. The opening is not straight so I have to bend up some sheet metal and weld in a straight section. Also had to straighten the inside trim. I still have to make the front felt channel.
