Thanks guys.

Ron... It sure would be nice if your build thread pictures showed up. I could really use some visual aides on how to mount this 7lbs hunk of metal. If you could send me some pictures in either PM thru BGW or any of my emails I would sure appreciate it.

I did finally get the grille to a belt sander. I sprayed it with prussian blue to find all the low spots plus squared it up more and I blew a few holes in it I figured that would happen and was prepared for that.

All of my build threads are screwed up right now cause of Image Cave. That site is currently down and the pics I have hosted though there won't work. It really ticks me off!!
I will start fixing my threads tonight after work, I will load all of the pics through BGW like I should have done to begin with.

Sounds like a lot of work but it sure would be nice to see those pictures

BTW. All my pictures are linked to my host server so the same thing could happen to me too if I were to stop paying for my hosting package I can't see that happening though. I would lose 150gig of music and be internet sterilized Godaddy could go poof but they promise to be backed up.

I checked it out but ended up loading pics through BGW. However, I will be downloading the picasa app.

Thanks TNG, I've enjoyed reviewing your threads now with pictures Gave me more ideas for the idea bank!

Back to the Grille. &^&@!()_&&%^#*() trashing it! I'm not happy with the result when I put it into the grand scheme of my cart project. I'm afraid the result is too boxy, square, sharp, and just doesn't flow into what I want. Oh well!

Now do I create a new thread for the new grill or stay on this one? I'm still thinking antique classic style, just not a Rolls Royce.

Default Different style

Big change of plans. I learnt a whole bunch making the Rolls grille. I learned I took it to the finishing stage way too soon and I should have started the grille tacking it to a welding table and done most all of the welding with it tacked in place. The thing became a pretzel a couple of times.

This time I will leave it in the jig as long as possible. Plus having a jig will alow me to put it back on "standing up in place" when I put the horizontal fins in.

Here are the pictures and you will see I love clamps you never have enough clamps, eventually I am going to end up having an empty shell of a toolbox at work

First thing was to make a table I could weld on and use for jigging assistance when I start playing with the front fenders and grille mount.



Here is my template picture. I wish I could find more views of this grille.



I started with making the crown. It took a lot of blasted math to get the angles. And after I got into bending I found out the top angle I welded for jigging was off by 1/8" grrr. It's okay as long as I remember that fact.



Lots of clamping.





The 24" ruler is indispensable. Marked up 1" increments all down the frame angles.





Here I'm getting set to do my first heat bends.



Done! This is where I figured out I am 1/8" off center. grrrrr.




More bending photos







More in next post.

Default cont









Here are the done photos. I will still skin the outside of the grille later but now knowing that I change my mind I don't want to go to far. I did run out of Mapp gas so the bottom still needs to be straightened/rounded a little but that won't take much.












Now I can start fab on the front clip and fenders. I think I have said that before!
