modifying the front end for some serious 'Überholprestige'


the modest original Ford grill all bent and dented and, well, much too original


and the multi-million dollar look with the Packard Clipper chrome cathedral of a grill


with room enough for the salvaged Caprice radiator


once the decision was made, it was time again to cut some historic sheet metal


shaping the upper lip out of what? - yeah - another old laundry drying rack is put to good custom use


adding a two inch lip to the hood


before drowning everything in smelly bondo again


spray on some rust effect paint and wait for the surprise the next day


before and after shot of the hood (rollover)


perfectly rusty


more parts getting the rust treatment in preparation of the first show end of September


lots more cool details as we go
