Grill swap- "square to round lights added"

So I swapped the grill on my GW today. What do you think?
Before;





During;



Finished;





Anyone looking for a late model grill?
I also figured out how to swap wing windows without tearing the whole door apart. I'll see if I can find the thread that discussed it so I can add to that one and keep it together for search purposes.

Thanks for looking.

Ya it came off a '79 Cherk. They changed them in '79, I have one of each and the mounts are just slightly different.

Grill

I would consider taking that grill off your hands how much?

I haven't been looking for a cheese grater for very long but they are WAY harder to find than a Rhino. Its probably all part of a vicious cycle- next up...the 86-91 final edition grill- start stockpiling!
