07-14-2008 01:12 PM next: the grille insert
To place the grille insert onto the frame I've made a slot-system.
On either side of the radiator I've welded a strip,these strips fit exactly in the two slots witch are located left and right inside of the grille insert.

Took an hour to clean the "Fiat" radiator,Removerd what was left of the original grille insert and cleaned the rest with a steel brush.
I placed the radiator as low as I could on the frame.

07-07-2008 01:39 PM remodeling the front rails
the left-side is ready. Flatened it out a bit on top. I've also made extra room for the grill insert between the rails. This way the grill insert sits free from the frame rails. Last picture shows a pair of coil overs I plan to use in the back. Originaly intended for Beetles and buggys but they work as well in the back of my car. Nice detail is that these come at one third of the price you pay for a "normal" set of hot rod coil overs!

07-06-2008 10:21 AM frame rails
I've bend my frame rails inwards so that they sit just beside
the grill insert.I dont like the shape of them so I will reshape them a bit. Not shure yet if I will close the holes at the end of the rails or that I will use these gaps to locate the indicators...

07-04-2008 09:30 AM "Le grille" ?!? what the heck is that?
Quiet a well known frase , among Simpsons-fans
For me this means my grille-insert arrived. Just what I need so I can start bending my front framerails inwards and instal the front-end (once it is finished...)
