That looks great!
I took one them outta a truck in the pile while the loader was taking vehicles from around me! I got the grill, headlight bezels & tailgate before he snatched it up.
Can those bezels be re-chromed?

Look Great!

The 73-74 grill is the best looking grill Chevy made for square body trucks!
