I need help figuring out what to do next on the front end.

My problem is figuring out how to tie the dodge crossmember into the upper framerails, they need some side to side reinforcement in that general area.

The thing that compicates matters for me is that now I am leaning towards going with an upright grill shell like the little french cars...not an exact copy, but something with that vibe. There will be a space between the frame rails and the grill that will be visible. Like on this car.

The radiator and steering are right where I think I need a big beefy, pretty brace.

Anybody have any ideas for what the crossmember reinforcement/upper rail tie-in should look like? (sketches would be wonderful)
