Default I've been grilled....

Just wanted to thank Gary U and Kube for the tip about Vintage Vehicles in Wautoma Wisconsin. It just so happened they had a 39 grill and restored trim as my pictured grill was pretty toast.

Thank you Bruce and Paul @ Vintage Vehicles.

Ooh La La !!! That grill was almost mint to start with, they used it when working on my trim. Looks like had grill trim to go with it as well.

Thanks Pete for making those pictures bigger.

Gary that trim and shell are very nice, the only thing I had to do was drill out the spot welds for the upper grill/radiator support and have that welded on to the restored grill.

Hope to have that done and painted with my hood sides before the snow flies

Thank you Bruce and Paul @ Vintage Vehicles.
Paul and Bruce are wonderful.
I typically do my own stainless restoration. However, when I get a piece that is bent, twisted, crushed, cut, etc., I send it to them. It always comes back looking as new. They are truly amazing craftsmen.
I think it's some type of magic I tell ya...
