While we are scribbling, I have some indecision to resolve. I submit this at face value and as a test of new phone. Gosh I haven't checked the resolution setting. I went with half of max before. Here goes-

That's a full size template I'm holding. Bolt pattern is written on it. The position of the bolts is not so ideal IMHO. Not spread out.

1971BB427 Weather warmed up to mid 50's today, so I got busy finish sanding my '39 Chevy grille. Then shot it with high build primer and shot it with VHT graphite color wheel paint. A budget solution to rehabilitating the grille without spending the whole budget on chrome work.





Getting the six little 10-32 screws, washers and nuts to hold the two halves together was tougher than I thought. It's very tight quarters in the internal V of the grille, and my big meat hooks dropped the parts too many times to count!

Thanks. I was being sarcastic on that post. I got a Steer Clear box to offset it back where it belongs.

If you're referring to the blister shape, I found a chunk of scrap at a neighbor's shop with a hole in it. Same could be done with a piece of thick walled tube or a cut out in a piece of wood. Stretch the metal into the hole with a radius faced hammer/plastic mallet. A wooden corking tool could be used as well to stretch the metal into the form.
