36 Ford Pickup truck radiator/grill shell assembly
Does anyone know if there is a database of parts for sale/swap here at Hotrodders.com? I am really tickled to find this resource as "Trees" with his 36 Ford pick-up restoration has been a real help to me. This is actually my 4th resto, but first ground-up redo of a rust bucket. It is a lot of fun. I am lacking a radiator, grill shell assembly for a 36 Ford pickup. I have a 37 Ford PU grill shell and a set of hood sides that I would like to work a trade for, but I can't find a good database of old car parts online. The grill shells up at e-bay are pure trash and these guys are getting more than what I paid for my whole truck. These units are so bad that I don't htink I could properly fix any of what I've seen up there so far. I am considering making a mold from my 77 resto of a 36's grill shell and making the grill out of some shelving material that has a similar pattern to a stock 36 PU grill, but finding something already done would be much easier. Thanks for any help you guys might have on this topic....WES
PS. - I am thinking about starting a site where if I can place an online version of an Access database, we might be able to develop something where a nominal subscription (of like $12 per year) might cover my cost to host the website and do what Hemmings has not been able to do, namely, put an organized list of parts and traders together for NOS parts. There would be no cost to place a listing, link your online photos, then you indicate when the item moves so it is withdrawn when you are done, etc. If there is something like this up here, I am not interested in "re-inventing the wheel," so to speak. ....What do y'all think?
