Cars are looking good, Pat. Now go put that Poncho back to bed before all of that raw southern steel starts to oxidize....

Nice job on the transformation of your wagon. A Facebook group just posted some photos of it. They think it is a super rare Pontiac Wagon only available in Canada. LOL.

Well, in a way they're right: it is super rare, and it was certainly assembled in Canada. I'm not sure it's ever been "available" though...

One of the Pontiac mods I did back in early 2012 was the pontiac bonneville grill. I wasn't really pleased with it, it looks ok and did the trick, but it just wasn't right, and looked too heavy.

Do keep in mind that at the time I fabricated that grill I was on pretty nasty pain killers and muscle relaxers. I wasn't moving very well and in a lot of pain from that accident. I built that grill in my family room on a tv tray while sitting in my recliner, the only chair I could tolerate for any length of time. It's also the only place I could sleep for the first six weeks after that accident.

that was two years ago, and it's time for a 95 Parisienne gril 2.0

The back of the grill center looks like the center out of the OCC.

Fiberglass instead of bondo this time?

That grill in the concept drawing looks remarkably like your new one. Except yours is a bit less angular, having some rounding more suitable to the B body it's going on. And I agree, the Mk. I was a bit too heavy.

I love the last line: "Who will be the first to build one?"

I've got news for that author: it's been done and his name is Pat.  Laughing You should send him a pic when you get the new grill painted and mounted.

I wonder if you should have left the grillwork itself in a flat black? Wasn't that more traditional than base colour in the Pontiac family?

that wasn't flat black, it was just black primer, DGGM comes out best when it's sprayed over black primer

the grill ain't done yet

A set of 5x5 to 5x4.75 adapters with a 78.3 centerbore should do the trick.Need to find out what the centerbore of the new wheels is if you want to keep it hub centric.
