Can't really help on the rest buy I'm pretty sure all
the 47-53 series trucks had chrome grilles.  Haven't
seen a stock s/s one yet.  On the running boards,
don't think braiseing them would be strong enough
since braiseing is fairly soft metal..I think I saw
some repo boards that run like $270 each.  With all
the time your going to spend tring to get it to look
right, might be cheaper and easier just to buy a new
one or find a truck in the bone yards to steal them
off of..just a suggestion.

Mod 53 3100
