  • contact info on new C/K grills?

    I have heard someone is casting new grills for 53-54 C/K but haven't seen any ads yet. Is this true and how do I get in contact with them? Furthermore, are they any good?

    Dave Thiebault ("T-bow" for the phonetically challenged) has some that he had cast in brass (bronze?). He has them available both chrome-plated and bare.
    He advertizes in Turning Wheels.

    Miscreant at large.

      They are fine, but like all side grills, align the sheet metal in the front so the holes line up first. The grills don't flex to meet the body anymore then the pot metal grills did, that's why so many are cracked.
