Re: GMC/Chevy grill on the wall

I like the idea. I want to get a tailgate trim and do the same thing. My Dad work at GM and made the tailgate trim. If I ever find a nice one, I'm going to have him sign the back of it and hang it in the garage. Silly? Maybe.

Re: GMC/Chevy grill on the wall

I have several on the wall as well as a stepside and blazer tailgates displayed.
Always good to have those up. Nice job.

Re: GMC/Chevy grill on the wall

73-74 grilles are perfect for hot wheels

How do you have the bezels and grill mounted flush like that? I have a thin sheet of extra subfloor material I think I could use and a 3M woodgrain kit. I have some spare parts I could do something cool with.

Re: GMC/Chevy grill on the wall

I used 3 inch X 3/4 wood and mounted it. I used all the hole in the grill to mount it to the wood it took some messing around to get it they way I wanted it .
