    Make sure you get the 22'' spinners to go with that!! LOL Just kiding man looks cool. Seems like every where you look you see tube buggys these days so the caddy grill would set you apart.

    Definitely do it....I bet it would be hard but I would wrap tube the same contour as the outside of the chrome piece and then mold it back into the front of the truck...It's about time somebody put some bling on the trail...I tried to but I couldn't afford it so I made a lil one instead...

    is that the hasbro r/c, or is that a real r/c truck? I have a non moving clodbuster with the ripper chassis. the funny thing is it is worth about as much as my real truck is!

    The photo proves that you must be "Pro Choice".... because that's clearly an abortion.

    You'd for sure have to match the colors up, that's half the problem right there. Once you get it looking good, those dudes over at PoserMobile will probably want to plug your ride in a commercial!:haha:

    it was a smashed caddy in for some well needed repair,

    if you notice though the grill is missing the sides where it covers the lights, which is a darn shame


    i just want to be different :)

    build a sheetmetal front clip about the width of that cadilac fron and add some nice fenders so it resembls a modern 1930s truck thats my 2 cents
