I am not a good one to ask I would pay more for it for my toy then if it were a tool. A tool I would use it without it, but my toy has to have it. I am going to use a repruduced grille.

here is the website that shows a picture of the repo grille
http://f1.grp.yahoof...y@yahoo.com.pdf

and his ad
<csguyy@yahoo.com>

I have front grills for the GT10 thru GT16 and Some tube frame Fords.
These Grills are heavy gauge metal, Laser cut and machine bent. They have cut
outs for the lights and the word 'HOT' cut in at the engine exhaust. These
grills are way stronger than the original, look great and bolt up easily. Check
out my pics at csguyy.

I do have more Grills for the tube frame tractors and if I run out, I can make
more. $85 shipping included.


I use paypal for our mutual protection. C

As it stands right now I am epoxying my model together. after I get the whole 'model' together and functioning with the hinge then I will mold them...it would make sense to put the hinge right where the plastic bends, but that point is flat on the hood...so I will have to move the hinge back towards the drivers seat apporx 3/8" when I am satisfied my model will work for everyone then I will begin to mold them...but not until it is perfect...
