OI, which one are talking about, the volunteering to help out in the artsy industry, or smiling and nodding to a good looking lady?

Joedoh, I agree the front end will need a wee bit of tinkering up.

And speaking of tinkering up the front end, here goes. The lady from the Grapes of Wrath, wanted the truck to look like it was on it's last legs, but the grille was a way past that she grumbled. I agreed, so I started the fixing. It was a wreck. I've seen guys that would just weld a cultivator shovel or a coyote trap on this grille and call it a ratrod. Not this cowboy.
Here's a Plymouth grill that I thought I'd use, but it's about 1" too short.

More welding on the grille shell. I believe you shouldn't use body filler on the front of a vehicle where rock rash happens, so all body work should be done with ----- metal. Anyhow it's done and picture two is showing my secret weapon, [Ultra-flat dark brown camouflage]. If I paint any old rusty thing that I've worked on for days, then no-one will ever guess that I touched it. They think I lucked out again and found a gem.
