The Build – Front Grille

by Rick Drewry, July 22, 2016

The team gets ready to work on the trim of the 1965 Chevy Malibu SS. The front end of the restomod was damaged so bad that the team will have to replace the two pieces underneath the headlights. Aftermarket and used pieces, both, are very difficult to locate, so Rick Drewry, Sr. Claims Specialist, ended up creating some of his own to use. The primary use of these pieces is as a filler panel from the fender to the chassis, where the radiator is located.

After those are installed, the new front grille will be put onto the classic car. The grille is now buttoned up, bolts are installed, and the front end is coming back together. The team re-installs fresh trim, the Chevrolet letters, pretty much all the missing pieces and final steps before Ami G. is back to “fully” restomod.
