Tennessee Newbie

Hello All! I have a 1951 L-120 and I love the thing. Does anyone have a lead on where I can find some grille molding/trim? It looks a little naked without it.

Thank much.

Re: Tennessee Newbie

You will have to keep looking to find some, they occasionally come up on ebay. I wonder if a person could "make" some similar looking trim from Aluminum?

Thank you. Like I said, I love the thing. I won't change anything, especially the paint! I just want to get a few items so I can make it complete.

Re: Tennessee Newbie

Theres a guy here in Durham that used to replicate aluminum trim for ford f100 trucks. I am sure that this could be replicated if someone had the talent and the will to.
