Needed to get a hole in the nose so the radiator would be able to do it’s job.
Haven’t really done much plunge routing so had to put on the thinking cap for this simple job.

Then shaped the edges and you guessed it sand sand sand.

Now I’m able to glue up the sides,and hope I haven’t got ahead of myself doing it.

I had a 62 Corvette, one of my favorites. Maybe my favorite was my 66 big block coupe.

This is more and more looking like a 1953 Corvette, some times you just go where the wood takes you.
