Built a pan for the bottom of the grill. Should have plenty of fresh air going into the radiator.

Very nice. Some of you guys have some really great metal working/fab skills. I'm very envious!

Thanks Ricky! It just takes a shop full of good tools and about 15-20 years of practice!

Re: 1951 lt1 t56 c4 build!!!

Starting to rebuild the inner fenders. Im trying to make it look as "factory" as possible but with way more clearance for the wide radiator.

Re: 1951 lt1 t56 c4 build!!!

Are you going to go with AC? Can't remember if you said already. Thinking about running my AC lines today and how to run them through the inners. Just thinking.

I relocated the lower radiator mounts from the side around to the front to help clear the new inner fenders.
