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.

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

Thats looking great, Pugsy. Is there any guidelines from SteerClear about sturdiness of mounting? Or can you put one on 18 gauge with holes and be done? Asking for the A and you're easier than finding the instructions for em.

They give zero instructions in the box. I will be spotwelding an 11 ga channel with welded threaded rods to the inside of the firewall.

You could probably bolt it to 18 ga though. You could try it, hook up the steering and dry run to see if it flexes. I'm using the 11 ga channel as that will bring it a hair higher than the recess from the bead rolling.


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.

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!
