Here are some more pics knighthawk sent to me to post for him.
The grill opening is formed with 5/8 copper tubing soldered to the fenders and hood, then cut in places so it can be removed as part of the fenders and hood. note the instant 'rust' due to the solder ( and lead) flux. I have more pictures of details, if intrested. Today working on recessing '53 Chev parking lights to use as turn signals..
