Grille restoration/replacement/ '36 Hupp

Hi everyone: This bullitin board is the greatest. I've submitted two questions and got great usable answers. I am in the process of building a restorod, a '36 Hupmobile. The grille is bent, badly corroded,and has numerous teeth missing. I have explored several avenues to repair/replace this item,such as, lost wax or lost foam casting, welding, or remanufacture by a street rod fabricator. Any way I go I know it is going to be a little bit pricey and I'm going to have to bite the bullet. I would like to hear how others have tackeled this problem. Thanks, Ed Farrell

This it?

Is the grille in these photos like what you have?

'36 Hupp Grille

Yes, thats my grille and thats my car! Not many of these around. Mine has a trunk on the back rather than an exterior spare tire. Tell me about your grille restoration or was it a good one when you started? Thanks, Ed Farrell

Sorry if I misled you. That's not mine, its just what turned up on a google search.

I thought it might be helpful if anyone commenting could see what sort of grille you were talking about.

I wish I could help, but I've never tackled anything like that. Hopefully someone whill chime in with some good advice.

That Hupmobile has beautiful lines. For the grille you might check with Alumicraft to see if they can do a custom one for you.

Are you wanting an original look?
