Help! Pictures of 66 Mustang open front valence with bumper

I want to attempt to form my own open front valence from my old stock piece, maybe something custom with a grill to match the stock unit. Does anyone have any close up shots of open valences with the bumper (I have a ton of pictures of the R Model valence).
Thanks,
Fred
PS Thanks Randy, without (Metalmeet) I never would have realized I could attempt something this ambitious. I'll be over there picking brains for advise as I proceed.

Ya mean like this

Go to google click image and type in road race mustang..One like this one.?? there are a bunch of pics of those over there..

Sounds to me like you are ready to beat metal..don't worry about making a mistake as you do not have to put it on the car until you have worked out the kinks..

Thanks OMT I searched a lot of different descriptions but "Road Race" was not one of them. Even though I'm attempting to do this myself, I wanted some examples to keep my dimensions close to what I've seen.

Thanks again guys, I went out to the garage and started cutting and hammering. I posted some pics in my journal and will add as I progress. I have to measure the bolt holes on the frame to make sure I keep my attachment points correct before welding in the tunnel. The valance has a lot of flex now that it is cut, and I don't want to weld it with a bow in the part.
