Was in the 70's today,so I started cleaning out the garage.Needed to move my '38 back into the shop with the '48 so the wife would have a place to park her new "toy" As usual took a few pictures while things were out side....

Did some more work on the grill.Finished welding the vertical bars,also added a horizontal bar to tie all the others together.Dressed all the welds and reinstalled it in the truck.Was 50 degrees and sunny out to day,so I pushed her outside,and tried to clean up the shop a bit........

I switched back to 1/2" wide stock for the rest oif the vertical bars.They give another step to the profile of the grill.I added bars until the openings were filled.You can also see how much the top of the insert is leaned back for clearance. I still need to add some horizontal supports and finish welding it up.

I started by adding 3 vetical bars lined up on the body lines and center of the opening. I continued adding bars until the center area was filled in.The profile follows the conture of the hood,meaning,even though its hard to see in the pictures,the grill is not flat across,its actually peaked like the hood.The outer ring of the insert is 1/2" wide stock,and the center vertical bars are 3/4" wide stock.
