Hey man, lookin good!!

I like the color of you car. At least to me it seemed that the Bonnie'* were only able to hold that.

Looks good but...

you should try a cross between 2 and 3....

Keep the screen on the whole thing like #2 but cut out paper template (you can shape your flames better that way) lay it on top of the screen and with a black spray can lightly spray it to have the flames showing sliver like you have there but with more detail (posibly all the way across the grill) and with MUCH less chance og the flames getting f***ed when washing the car and what not

I used a paper template, but it isn't easy to cut the mesh. Peices were falling out. Next time I do it, I'm just going to use a different kind of mesh. It isn't metal, but I'm going to paint it. It'* all molded in one piece. That way I can cut it however I want it.

And Bill, I'll try to get some, depending on what time mom gets home tonight.(before you ask, my mom is driving my car to work)

I know..I merely figured since sunlight was slowly creeping back into the NE..it was probably there too and you could snap a couple.
