I like the way you put a wee bit of hood and side curtain behind the grille.
Keep on tinkering.

Looks real good Cooper, I'm running pretty much the same rad with my Third Gen Hemi with no over heating issues

Default Play'in w cardboard

So this is my idea.... I'd like to somewhat close in the engine side of the grill surround for a clean look. I still have a lot of things to figure out.

First I have to build the radiator support which will basically be 1 piece of angle iron welded to the top of the frame rail on each side for the radiator flange to bolt to.

The lower half of the grill has slots in it so the frame rails can slide thru. Once the grill is in place it will bolt up to some additional angle bracketry that comes off the front side of the rad support angle iron.

To get the grill to slide on the frame and pass the radiator & support angles the white mocked up pieces of cardboard will have to bolt on. If it was going to be a rusty rat I'd just utilize the center hinge but that jazz will be flapping and chipping up the paint. I'm going to lose the hinge and weld a strip in there.

It would be easy to bolt the hood extension black piece to the red grill but that will also be a &6%$ show.

I'm thinking a 3/8 round welded at the edge of the black at the tear drop, then just behind it an angle or flat so that piece slides in and bolts.

Unless of course you guys are seeing something I'm not at the moment

Sounds like a solid plan.
