Were using an original grill.  Were going to shorten it up a bit (1/2), so as to help with the flow of the cowl to hood.  Its enough to help, but not enough to be noticeable.  And its really no big deal since we need to have the grill re-chromed anyway.

Its cut no turning back now!

Welded back together. 
 
 
You cant tell anything has been done.  But this little bit helps tremendously in hoodtop to cowl and body line flow.
