Heh. You're really gonna hate this one, then. Hood, nose, fenders all welded together.

Thanks, a friend is a metalsmith and I think he can help me close up the gap. I'm not making the nose just painting it body color. I have an extra that came with the car with worse chrome than the original but fortunately neither is pitted.

That's why they call them "fish mouth" Studes. It reminds me of a catfish.

F&J I don't know your fabricating talents...but.. I would at least "think" about tossing the whole grille panel, and maybe even the bumper, to be able to make a whole different look. Maybe a grille style "system" more like a 57 ford or similar cars 56 chev, etc.

so you do want the center emblem colored? Right?

and what about the recess in the bumper?
Leave the license plate, you can black out the V in the grill opening if you want, it's getting set in about 3 inches to the inside.

Like this one.....

Holder350 what I got so far......its seems that its realy hard to color a chrome part.

I'll work more on it tomorow...and see if I can get some pointers.

I haven't removed the lights yet but I will get to that.

OOPS! That didn't make much sense did it? My brain is a lot faster than my fingers. I meant to say "leave the chrome bumper"

Guess my age is showing, "Appleton's" are the spotlights.
