Nice work, that looks sweet! Most v8 builds with the radiator up front you see the front end hacked up with grills that just don't look right but yours looks very natural and clean.

Like this one? I didn't do this radiator install but someday I'll redo it. At least the section between the headlights was spared.

Hrm2k that grill looks like it was always there. Great work.

There's something almost Aston Martin about that grill. I like it a lot, good work!
