03-05-2010 08:18 PM Grill version 3
Since I started this build I have been struggling with the grill insert.I had tried a couple of different ideas,no of which I really liked.....so I decided to go back to the original idea and just make a simple vertical bar type grille.
I need to star from scratch...again.I made some simple mounts in the sides of the shell and started with the vertical side pieces.Then added the lower curves and bottom.At the top of the insert I needed it to be layed back slightly to clear the hood when it opens and closes.

Moved to the passenger side rail. Welded up extra holes,trimmed the lower part of the rail to match the upper.Also trimmed the lower for the contour up to the frame horn.Boxed and welded the inside......

Finished up the header modification.Im pretty happy with how it came out.
Should work pretty well,and the mod wont be noticable under the header wrap when its done.

I also made a new hole in each frame rail.I got a couple of thru frame fittings for the front brakes.I installed them for fitting and made sure the lines where long enough to work.

02-25-2010 08:05 PM My solution.....
Building this truck from left over parts,I grabbed an old header from the stash,and cut it apart.I spent a litle time trying to piece the tube around the steering,and this is where I ended up.....just taped together for fitting,I think its going to work.I can get the steering shaft in and out,the spark plugs still hace good access as well as the header bolts.
