I voted stupid. But, it's your car. Whatever floats your boat.

Honestly I'm not sure I'm going to keep it that way. I will wait until the car is done and see how I like it. I'm not making any changes that I can't undo. You will have to admit that it will be the only one like it. I always thought they set the factory grill too far back in the 67-8's.

Seems that the dislikers are louder than the likers.

On a Cougar it would be right in place.
You know, kind of like a "Catwalk".

I didnt' vote, based on the fact you aren't done with it. As is, I'm not diggin'it personally. That said, it doesn't mean it wouldn't look totally bitchin' with a little more creative thought.
Try doing some photoshop stuff with driving lights, or black out work. You've put a lot of work into that grill. It would be a shame to ditch it without realizing it's full potential...or not.

Kudos on at least attempting something no one else has done. Kind of like a truck I saw today. 1970 F150 short bed with big old Cadilac fins grafted onto the bed. Very different. Perfect "Rat-rod" kind of thing, which based on the rest of the truck is what he was going after. Had to give the guy a thumbs up on pulling off something very difficult. He got a big grin as he drove by.

Good luck,

Thanks Scott that is the kind of input I like to hear. "Don't like it but nice effort" is better than "It sucks"! I have been thinking about some kind of driving lights but I don't want to block the radiator and the right side has a ram air scoop behind the grill. Also the fact that the top of the grill is so close the edge of the hood I'm not sure what I could get in there that would look good. I'll keep playing with it.

I voted cool. because i like the idea of it, but not with that grill. Put a billet or even a mustang grille in the place of that one, but out farther, and it would look cool.

Default I think I may have an idea.

Since you've pulled the grill all the way out, what if you took a 66 floating pony center flush mounted the frame and recessed the pony? It would break up the grill area, and be kind of a reverse of what the factory did. You could do the same with a couple of the projector style fog lights, utilizing the the stock turn signal bezel. Pushed all the way out to the headlight area. Almost an Eleanor type deal. The more I look at this, the more possibilities I see. You might even end up improving the air flow.

Sure wish Nualln was still around, he was excellent with Photo Shop. Some one on here has got to have some "Photo-chop" skills.


A blob of clay on a potter's wheel isn't much to look at until someone turns it into a pot!
