I was looking at the stainless grille insert on the ’32 the other day, and noticed particularly the two horizontal strips that keep the vertical bars aligned. I wondered what radical transformation the car would undergo (and ultimately how much more horsepower I could squeeze) if those horizontal bars were black, to blend in with the radiator.
Here’s the product of my wonder:
It was a bit of a trick to mask the vertical bars, but I think it came out exactly as I planned: black.
I like the black. I would like this in a kit form so I can customize to fit me 32 truck shell that will be chopped to accomidate the organic alterations via mother nature and my stance requirements for my 27 “phone booth”
I was planning on making my own from SS welding rod anyway but your kits have been helpful in time and error reduction.

The grille insert is from Dale’s Manufacturing in OK… a very high quality piece. I just painted the support bars – can’t take credit for the beautiful grille!
