I know Gene is shipping one of his grills to New York so if you still need one I think he has 1 left.

Its been a while, few thing done: got the motor started, rebuild the carb and now working on the passenger side rear wheel drums, it hard to turn the wheel, sticking. Put on the front bumper but couldn't leave it because the lower core support was getting on my nerve's, so this winter pull it out and straight it out. This is what it looks like before i did that, found lower valance on Ratsun, thanks to the seller and now waiting to pick up my wooden 240z steering wheel.

your bed is missing something. either a spacer, washer, rubber piece..... i don't know something. it's a hair lower than the cab is. i like the pin strip all the way around the truck but it really shows the bed being lower. looking good otherwise

Front top edge bed should be even with the little flat edge on the cab.
