Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Motivation, ha!
I took the raggedy '34 Dodge Brothers grille and the beat-up '33 Plymouth grille and fixed up a ratrod grille that's 2" too short.

There will be a little bit of the top header plate peaking out under the grille shell, and quite a bit of the bottom header showing too. It will take me too long to make a Dodge Brothers grille for this play. Pictures to come later.

Here is the picture of the short grille in the Dodge Brothers grille-shell.
The grille is not only too short, it is also a wee bit too wide.
Any how, I always wanted to make a grille, so now I get my chance when I convert this truck to a ratrod.
The Grapes of Wrath Lady is coming out on Monday to inspect my progress, and introduce me to the boss man.
