 Michael, on the '54's, the entire grill is painted the same color as the 
truck. On the lower most bar and the second bar (that is in two pieces), the 
inner portion is painted "Thisle Gray". Also on the "Bull Nose" piece, the 
inner portion of it is also painted "Thisle Gray" as well. On '55 1st series, 
the grill was white with black inner portion. Hope this helps!

technical piece of painting info on my '54 grill. I think
that I had once read that the front grill on the '54 had a different color
on part of the horizontal bars. Does anyone have any info on this? Specifically,
there are 3 "planes" that run the length of these bars and I'm trying to
find out where the color change occurs. Is it on the second or third plane
counting from the face.
