Talking What do you do when the ole lady goes shoppin for the day?

well.. first off.. open up a nice cold beverage..


then.. get your buddies welder.. a M-151 grille.. some headlight buckets.. and...
find some odd tabs you had lying around.. bolt them to the headlight bucket.. and place on grille..


then mark and cut brackets to fit flush.. and weld them on.. then grind your welds down semi smooth.. so your buddies dont give you crap for messin up a piece of history..


then install the headlights.. here is the first one i did.. the uneven marks you see are layers of paint.. this grille must have 20 layers on it.. and well i am not that ambitious to take them all off the entire grille.. plus.. they are military paint layers.. so they can stay..


here it is finished..
