    Here's what the grill guard should look like:
    Look at that trailer! I want.

    Congrats on the "FUGLY" girl. A real pleasure to watch another PB restoration. Keep the photos and such coming. A rolling piece of rare American history. Ya "rock" PB!

    God bless,
    Tony

    Papabear:

    Now you'll have to find rebuild kits for the carb and all the rubber in the fuel lines, as it might take 68 Octane, but it won't digest ethanol laden unleaded at all. Now that I think of it, you might want to do valve stem seals and new alloy seats for the valves...no lead to lubricate those parts either. The grill guard should be easy to make, just inspired blacksmithing is all that's going to be!

    Have a Good, Warm evening down your way!
    Cheers,

    And when at last he came upon the vehicle, he perceived the distress of the engine therein and forthwith struck it with a hammer and it was good. Thereupon the engine ignited and was filled with strength...

    Don't follow me, you won't make it! Heck I probably won't!

    PB, you need to get the CAMO crew better GPS if they wind up in a diner in Butler, GA. I can say that because I grew up in Reynolds, not very far away. I remember there being a National Guard unit near my house as a kid and seeing a lot of neat green stuff. Amazed that someone had this near by.
